£5 Million Sewer Improvement Project Underway For Ormeau Area of Belfast

£5 Million Sewer Improvement Project Underway For Ormeau Area of Belfast

NI Water has announce that work has commenced on a £5 million project to improve the sewerage infrastructure in the Ormeau area, which will include Ormeau Avenue, Dublin Road, Bruce Street, Sandy Row and sections of the lower Ormeau Road.

Work commenced on 5th February 2018 on Adelaide Street, with work progressing from the Ormeau Avenue end. NI Water anticipates that this phase will be completed in May 2018. NI Water has liaised closely with the Department for Infrastructure and other key stakeholders during the planning of these works, and will continue to do so as the work progresses.

David McGrath, NI Water’s Senior Project Manager, said: “Work is now underway on this essential Sewer Improvement Work, which will reduce the risk of Environmental pollution to the River Lagan and sewer flooding in this part of the sewerage network during periods of heavy rainfall. The project will also accommodate future growth and development in Belfast City Centre and the wider Dublin Road/Ormeau area, allowing for new connections to the upgraded sewerage network.

“There has been flooding in the area in the past as a result of blockages in the sewerage system caused by fats oils and greases (FOG). This project will improve the sewerage infrastructure in the area but that doesn’t mean customers in the area should become complacent with disposing of FOG, everyone has a role to play in keeping the drains clear and fat free. The effects can be devastating and costs NI Water thousands of pounds per year to clear the blockages that occur.”

NI Water and its contractor Dawson WAM will continue to keep businesses and residents in the area informed of progress, through direct day-to-day contact on site and regular updates through Belfast City Centre Management.

As proud partners of NI Year of Infrastructure 2018, NI Water is helping to raise awareness of how infrastructure underpins our lives. This £5 million investment in the Ormeau area is an excellent example of the importance of our infrastructure to help reduce the risk of flooding and protect the environment.
