NI Water is pleased to announce that a £1.2million Water Improvement Scheme is about to get underway in the Cargan and wider Cushendall area, which will improve water services and the security of the water supply for customers in the Cushendall/Cushendun area.

This major scheme involves replacing the existing Cushendall Water Pumping Station with a new Water Pumping Station outside Cargan Village, as well as the installation of a 2km pipeline from Cargan to Parkmore Service Reservoir.

This new Water Pumping Station will not only supply Parkmore, but also other Service Reservoirs in the Cargan/Cushendall area, improving the water supply for over 11,000 customers.

Work is scheduled to commence at the end of November 2021 and further notifications will be issued during the phasing of the works.

NI Water along with our contractor Glan Agua Farrans and project managers Capita would like to thank the local community for their patience and cooperation as this essential project gets underway.
