NI Water is currently engaged in an ongoing process of improving and upgrading the water supply infrastructure throughout Northern Ireland and work is due to get underway in the Benbradagh Estate and Benevenagh Road areas of the town.

A spokesperson for NI Water said: “This £3.7 million investment is good news for customers in the local area, as the upgraded watermains will improve the quality, reliability and security of the local water supply, while reducing leakage and improving pressure in the area.”

The work will involve improving approximately 36km of watermains thoroughout the area.

Work will commence in late November in Limavady and the overall programme of work will progress throughout the wider area until October 2020.

The spokesperson added: “NI Water and our contractor Meridian Utilities would like to thank the public for their patience and cooperation while we complete this essential programme of work and we will do everything possible to keep any disruption to a minimum.

“Letter drops will be completed as we move in to 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 ‘Meridian Utilities Water Mains Rehabilitation Programme’.”
