Sinn Féin Councillor Brenda Chivers has welcomed the news that there are no asbestos lined water pipes in the Drumsurn area.
Referring to recent speculation about the matter, Colr. Chivers said she had been “approached by many local residents concerned about the type of water pipes in use in the Drumsurn area”.
“I wrote to the Water Service and have been assured that there are no such pipes in the Drumsurn area although there are small number asbestos lined pipes in the Limavady area,” she said.
“I have also been assured that these pipes are perfectly safe but I would call on the Water Service to replace this style of pipe as a matter of urgency to relieve public concern.”
