Construction work on a scheme to reduce the risk of flooding in the Foyle Springs area of the city is due to get underway next month.

The £830,000 project by NI Water also involves the upgrading of the sewerage infrastructure in the area.

Phase 1 will involve laying a new sewer pipeline and manholes from Springvale Park through Liscannor Park, Kenmore Park to Killary Road.

NI Water belives the work will get underway in April and will continue for approximately five months.

Phase 2 involves the construction of a large underground storage tank and associated pipework in the grass verge at Springvale Park.

This work is due to start on site in September, subject to statutory approvals and funding availability, and will last approximately eight months.

In consultation with local representatives, NI Water has arranged a meeting to allow local residents and their representatives to raise any concerns they may have with the project team regarding the Phase 1 pipelaying work.

A public meeting will take place on Tuesday, March 31 (6.30pm) in the Upstairs Meeting Room at Holy Family Parochial House in Ballymagroarty.
