NI Water completes Forkhill Sewer Improvement Scheme

NI Water has announced that it has completed an essential sewer improvement scheme in Newry, which will service the new St Oliver Plunkett Primary School on the Main Street in Forkhill

NI Water Project Manager, Michael Kennedy spoke to Newry Times and said, “These projects are good news for the local community as they will improve the sewerage infrastructure and waste-water services in the Forkhill area. NI Water is currently investing approximately £3 million per week improving water and wastewater services throughout Northern Ireland and these schemes are an example of the many projects being undertaken throughout Northern Ireland to deliver a 21st century infrastructure.”

Meanwhile, further work also continues in the Forkhill area to upgrade the Forkhill Wastewater Treatment Works. The work, which represents an investment of almost £2 million by NI Water, will enhance the service provided to the area by reducing the environmental impact of the Works while allowing for future development in the area. The work will also ensure that the plant meets the latest Northern Ireland Environment Agency and EU standards.

The work, which is scheduled for completion in summer 2013, will primarily take place within the existing site at Forkhill WwTW.
