Just over 5km of new large diameter water main has been installed to link key pumping stations in the wider Newry area with the new reservoir at Crieve, which will quadruple the storage capacity of the original tank. Welcoming local MP, Mickey Brady along with Newry, Mourne and Down councillors to the Crieve Service Reservoir site recently, Martin Gillen, NI Water project manager for the scheme said, “The completion of the pipelaying element is a significant step forward in this important infrastructure project for the wider Newry area. He added, “The new pipeline and extended Crieve Service Reservoir – which will be brought fully into service in early 2016 – will improve the security of the water supply across Newry city and its surrounding areas.” This latest £6m NI Water investment forms the third phase of the Ballydougan to Newry Trunk Main Scheme, which has already seen £14m invested in upgrading the water infrastructure serving the city. Other work being undertaken by NI Water as part of the current package of improvements includes extensive refurbishments at Carnbane Pumping Station, which are almost complete and a new pumping station at Cullyhanna which has just recently got underway. Chlorination and control equipment at a number of other NI Water sites including Camlough Water Treatment Works, Newry West Service Reservoir, located off the Camlough Road and Camly Service Reservoir located south of Newtownhamilton, are also being updated.
