NI Water has announced a £1.2 million investment to improve water services and secure the water supply for Cargan and wider Cushendall area as work on a major water improvement scheme gets underway.

The scheme involves replacing the existing Cushendall Water Pumping Station with a new Water Pumping Station outside Cargan Village, as well as the installation of a 2km pipeline from Cargan to Parkmore Service Reservoir.

Work is scheduled to commence at the end of November 2021 and further notifications will be issued during the phasing of the works.
