£250,000 water mains work in south Armagh could last up to 10 weeks

NI Water says investment will improve quality, reliability and security of local supply

NI Water has started a £250,000 programme of what it describes as “essential water mains improvement work” in the south Armagh area.

It will involve the installation of new water mains in Meigh and some existing services will also be transferred over to the new pipework.

NI Water says the investment is good news for customers in the local area, as the upgraded water mains will improve the quality, reliability and security of the local water supply.

Work will continue for approximately eight to 10 weeks and working hours will be 9am until 5pm.

The majority of pipelaying will take place on the Carn Road in Meigh.

A spokesperson said: “NI Water would like to thank the public for their patience and cooperation while we complete this essential programme of work to improve the water supply infrastructure, and we will do everything possible to keep any disruption to a minimum.

“Letter drops have been completed in the affected areas to advise residents of this work and traffic management and signage will also be in place as the work progresses.

“Our customer relations team can be contacted via Waterline on 03457 440088. Customers with any questions on the scheme should quote ‘Lagan Construction Ltd Water Mains Rehabilitation Programme’.”
