Derry Area Plan 2011
Public Utilities: Water and Sewerage Services
The provision of mains water and sewerage services is the responsibility of the Water Service. The major water and sewerage capital works programme will be continued and be capable of expansion as demand arises and resources permit. Major improvements at Caugh Hill Water Treatment Works to bring the works up to EC standards were completed in 1998. A scheme to provide secondary sewage treatment at Culmore Sewage Treatment Works is included in the Capital Works Programme.
The water distribution system and sewerage network can be extended to service the proposed development sites. However, the time required by the Water Service to provide any necessary services will depend on the complexity of the work involved, the practicality of doing the work and the availability of the necessary Government finance.
