£2.4 million Watermains Improvement Work Gets Underway in Lurgan

14 November 2018 16:11

NI Water is currently engaged in an ongoing process of improving and upgrading the water supply infrastructure throughout Northern Ireland and work will get underway shortly in the Lurgan area. This £2.4 million investment in the wider Lurgan area is good news for customers as the upgraded watermains will improve the quality, reliability and security of the local water supply, while reducing leakage and improving pressure in the area.

The work will involve improving approximately 19km of watermains throughout the Lurgan area, initially focusing on the Silverwood Estate for the first 6 months of this programme. The overall schedule of work will then progress throughout the wider area until March 2020.

NI Water and our contractor Meridian Utilities would like to thank the public for their patience and cooperation while we complete this essential programme of work and we will do everything possible to keep any disruption to a minimum.

Letter drops will be completed as we move in to affected areas to advise residents of this work and traffic management and signage will also be in place as the work progresses.

Our customer relations team can be contacted via Waterline on 03457 440088. Customers with any questions on the scheme should quote “Meridian Utilities Water Mains Rehabilitation Programme”.
