NI Water has completed a major new reservoir at Ballylone. The new reservoir will increase the security and flexibility of the water supply for over 5,000 customers in the Ballynahinch, Crossgar and Killyleagh areas.
Almost £1 million was invested in this new reservoir, which has a capacity of approximately 5.6 mega litres. This is the equivalent to the amount of water needed to fill approximately 2 Olympic size swimming pools.
”This project is just one example of the level of investment required to improve water and wastewater services throughout Northern Ireland,” says project manager, Gary McFadden.
The contractor for the Ballylone Reservoir Project was Lagan Construction, with McAdam Design as designers and Capita Symonds as project managers.
