NI Water to undertake preparation work at Dundrum Pumping Station

06 February 2023 16:12

NI Water is planning to undertake tree cutting work this month within the Flynn’s Wastewater Pumping Station (WwPS) site on Main Street, Dundrum.

The tree cutting is being carried out on Friday 17th February, ahead of the annual bird nesting season getting underway, and in preparation for the construction of a new pumping station which NI Water hopes to be in a position to start later this year.

Explaining the work and the potential for traffic management in the area, Lisa Hughes, NI Water Senior Project Manager said:

“NI Water is hoping to start construction on a new Wastewater Pumping Station adjacent to the existing station in 2023. In anticipation of construction work being able to get underway this year, our contractor BSG Civil Engineering will carry out some site clearance work outside of the bird nesting season.

“To ensure that the tree cutting can be carried out as safely as possible, overhead electric cables will have to be temporarily isolated. In a bid to minimise disruption to the adjacent school, we have programmed to undertake the site clearance work during the mid-term break.

“A lane closure with traffic lights will also be in place in front of the WwPS site for safety reasons during the tree cutting work, which is expected to take 2-3 days to complete.”

Looking forward to the impending construction works, Lisa added: “NI Water is committed to delivering a fully upgraded sewerage network for Dundrum. Extensive work has already been completed by NI Water in the village and we look forward to constructing new pumping stations at Flynn’s and Kielty’s to improve coastal water quality and increase capacity to meet future development needs.

“We thank the local community and wider public for their patience and cooperation as we carry out this site preparation work and will provide further updates on any planned construction works as soon as possible.”
