NI Water in Dungiven child safety warning

With mid-term break approaching, NI Water is sending a ‘play safe’ message to young people in the Dungiven area.

In light of the company’s Sewer Improvement Work in the Glenroe Park area of Dungiven, NI Water is urging parents to ensure children are aware of the dangers of playing near construction sites.

Nigel McKee, NI Water’s Project Manager for the scheme explained:

“Understandably some children are drawn to construction sites as exciting places to explore, but they are not playgrounds and playing on them can have dangerous consequences.”

“We want to spread this warning throughout the area and I would urge all parents to keep their children safe by explaining to them the dangers of playing in or around construction sites.”

Nigel continued: “NI Water is committed to providing a modern and effective sewerage system across Northern Ireland. We are currently investing approximately £3 million per week in upgrading key treatment works and network upgrades, which results in necessary construction sites. Hopefully our safety message will help to prevent any accidents.”

This essential improvement work to extend the sewage system in Glenroe Park will commence during the week commencing 30th January 2012 and will last approximately two weeks. NI Water and its contractor Lowry Bros Ltd would like to thank the public in advance for their patience and cooperation while we complete this essential improvement work.
