£680,000 Wastewater Pumping Station Upgrade gets underway in Crumlin
29 October 2018 14:51
NI Water is pleased to announce that work is now underway on a £680,000 project to upgrade the existing main Wastewater Pumping Station in Crumlin. Once complete, this work will improve the sewerage network in the area and will provide additional storage capacity, particularly during periods of heavy rainfall, therefore reducing the risk of flooding. It is anticipated that the overall programme of work will continue until May 2019.
The project will replace the existing wastewater pumping station, allowing NI Water to comply with Northern Ireland Environment Agency Standards and reduce the risk of environmental pollution. The replacement pumping station will provide a more robust and reliable station to transfer flows towards Antrim Waste Water Treatment Works.
The work will involve the construction of a new underground tank within the existing site off the Cidercourt Road in Crumlin. Some localised sewer upgrade work is also proposed on the sewage pumping main and the incoming sewers.
As the majority of work will be contained within the existing site, disruption should be minimal. However, customers may notice a slight increase in construction traffic and noise in the area between the hours of 7.30am and 6.00pm Monday to Friday. Access to the footpath to Crumlin Glen from Cidercourt Road will be maintained throughout the works.
NI Water and our contractor Graham Construction Ltd would like to thank the public for their patience and co-operation while we complete this essential work. We will make every effort to keep disruption to a minimum and would like to assure you that we will do everything we can to complete the work as quickly as possible.
