The project includes the construction of a new water treatment plant, reservoir, rising mains, development of two abstraction boreholes and decommissioning of an existing plant. This project will also improve the quality and security of water supply for nine housing estates and a nursing home which are currently operating wells which have been subject to Boil Water Notices in the past. Upon completion of this project, these customers will be supplied by the upgraded water supply scheme.
