NI Water will continue to monitor the situation closely.  NI Water regrets that 6,500 properties still remain without a water supply and anticipate that further properties may also suffer a disruption to their supply throughout the day due to ongoing industrial action.”

This is an issue which I intend to raise again at the DRD committee. Public patience is beginning to run out on this issue, it is vital that a resolution is agreed as soon as possible.”

NI Water have advised “NI Water is working to minimise disruption to customers’ supplies and where appropriate will be providing alternative supplies. The location of the alternative water supplies (water from plastic tanks) will be available via the postcode search on niwater.com or by contacting us on 08457 440088. Customers will need to bring their own containers to collect water from the tanks. Customers should boil the water before use.”
