NI Water recently attended the regular meeting of Mid and East Antrim Borough Council in Ballymena to update members on local investment worth over 10 million this year.
Alec McQuillan, NI Water's Head of Wastewater, who addressed the meeting, said as part of their wider campaign of local government engagement, they were proud to outline investment worth some 10.6 million in the Mid and East Antrim Borough Council area over the current financial year.
This,he continued, represents part of a cumulative capital investment in the area of 51.8 million since 2013.
“This substantial investment is prioritised to protect the local environment, reduce the risk of flooding and help ensure our customers have an uninterrupted clean water supply, particularly over the winter," said Mr. McQuillan.
“The opportunity was also taken to update the Council on our ongoing winter awareness campaign, 'Don't Wait Insulate', which is intended to encourage customers to protect pipes and water fittings in their properties in advance of potential severe winter weather."
The Head of Wastewater also outlined NI Water's ongoing commitment to the Borough, including the ongoing Toome Road flood alleviation scheme in Ballymena, wastewater infrastructural upgrades in Ahoghill and watermains rehabilitation work in the Carrickfergus area, as well as forthcoming wastewater infrastructure upgrade work in Galgorm, Taylorstown, Moorfields and Devenagh.
