DUP Colr Alan Robinson has made an appeal to the Limavady public asking that they take care with what they flush down their toilets.
Mr. Robinson met with Northern Ireland Water officials with regard to the local problems and was alarmed to learn of the type of items that have been pulled from pipework over the years - bricks, mop heads, and even cooking fat.
“Having met with NI Water officials this week they tell me that they are carrying out an intensive CCTV sewer operation and a de-silting process from Edenmore Road, Greystone Road, Scroggy Road and across to the Council owned 3g sports pitches. The information gathered will be forwarded to Asset Management to decide whether or not there is a need for a wider scheme to increase capacity within the sewer network,” said Colr. Robinson. “It is outrageous residents in that locality have had to endure garden and street flooding.”
