NI Water Invests £1 Million to Upgrade Watermain Supplying Fermanagh Reservoirs

NI Water has announced the completion of the first section of a 3.5 km watermain between Ally Hill Service Reservoir (SR), on the outskirts of Lough Bradan and Doochrock SR near Ederney, as part of a million pound investment to improve and safeguard the local water supply. The new upsized watermain will replace the old cast iron pipe which runs through Lough Bradan Forest and along Glen Road and Mweelbane Road.

The first section in the forest – which to improve future access is being laid along a cleared fire break away from the overgrown path of the old pipe – is now complete. Work on the roads is due to get underway after Easter followed by a final short section in the forest in May.

To ensure that pipelaying is undertaken in the safest possible manner along the roads, NI Water’s contractor, BSG Civil Engineering will need to implement temporary road closures.

Martin Gillen, NI Water Project Manager said: “This larger diameter watermain is being laid to provide a more robust means of transporting water from Lough Bradan Water Treatment Works to a number of storage reservoirs in the area, including Doochrock, Drumkeeran, Largy and Drumharvey, which in turn supply much of the North/North West and East of Fermanagh. Unfortunately due to the narrowness of local roads, it will be necessary for our contractor to implement short road closures to ensure the highest levels of health and safety for both workers and the general public.

“The first section of road affected by pipelaying will be part of the Glen Road – from 143 Glen Road to its junction with Mweelbane Road – which will be closed to through traffic from Monday 9th April until Friday 4th May. The Mweelbane Road will then be closed from its junction with the Glen Road up to 161 Mweelbane Road from Monday 7th May for a week to facilitate pipelaying. Advance notification of the work will be erected in the area and letters will be delivered to residents living on these roads for whom access will be maintained at all times. We would kindly ask all other motorists to follow the diversions signposted.
