£500,000 NI Water wastewater infrastructure upgrade to get underway in Rasharkin

NI Water is due to begin a £500,000 upgrade at Moneyleck Wastewater Pumping Station (WwPS) in July.

The upgrade – which will take around 6 weeks to complete – will see a complete overhaul of the existing pumping station as well as the installation of a new larger diameter pumping main. NI Water said this significant investment will strengthen the wastewater network, cater for development and provide better environmental protection in the area.

Paul Hamilton, NI Water Project Manager said:

“The upgrade to the pumping station will take place within the existing Moneyleck WwPS site. As part of the improvements, the existing underground tank will be increased in size and new mechanical and electrical equipment will be fitted. The existing building within the site will be demolished and a kiosk will be installed in its place. The existing WwPS will remain operational during the upgrade work. To provide a more robust network and meet future demand, a new larger diameter pipeline is required.”
