NI Water has announced the start of a £1.3 Million project, which will be essential to the future resilience of the water supply infrastructure, primarily in the Ards Peninsula area. Phase one of this major improvement scheme will commence in mid-June and will continue until the end of September.

Infrastructure Minister John O’Dowd welcomed the news: “This £1.3 million investment is good news for customers in the Ards Peninsula area. This key improvement scheme will protect and future-proof the local water infrastructure for customers, businesses and tourism in the area. Enhanced security of water supply will provide a more reliable service for people in the area which is to be welcomed.”

Gary McFadden, NI Water Project Manager said: “We are delighted to announce phase one of this water improvement scheme, which will greatly benefit the Ards Peninsula area, improving the robustness and resilience of the water supply infrastructure.
