What are the benefits of this project?

  • Safeguard the water supply to the Ballivor and Longwood areas.
  • Ensure both plants have a sufficient storage capacity to meet increasing demands.
  • Provide a safe, secure and sustainable source of drinking water to the areas.
  • Improve water quality and water treatment standards.

What is involved as part of this project?

  1. Construct a new 630 m3 above-ground treated water storage tank at the existing Kilmurray Water Treatment Plant in Ballivor.
  2. Construct a new 500 m3 above-ground storage tank storage tank at the existing Longwood Water Supply Zone.
  3. Construction of weather proof enclosures for the tanks, below-ground dechlorination chambers, associated pipework and ancillary works at both plants.
  4. All construction works will be undertaken in a way to minimise the disruption to the Ballivor and Longwood Water Supply Schemes.
  5. Construction works will be carried out within the footprint of the plants, therefore minimising disruption to traffic, residents and businesses in the surrounding area.
