Reservoirs closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19

1 Mins read

To prevent the further spread of the coronavirus and in response to the government directive issued on Monday 23 March, for everyone to stay at home, NI Water is closing public access to its reservoirs, and any adjoining cafes, toilets and car parks until further notice.

Des Nevin, Director of NI Water’s Customer Service Delivery Directorate says, “To help keep the public protected from the spread of Covid-19, water companies are closing their sites which the public can access. To fight the spread of this virus, the advice from Government is to travel only if it is absolutely necessary, to social distance and to stay at home.”

The emergency legislation, the Coronavirus Bill, has introduced restrictions, aimed at preventing the spread of the disease.

Des Nevin, Director of NI Water’s Customer Service Delivery Directorate continues, “Although water companies are passionate about providing the public with nature sites to boost health and wellbeing, this move is in the best interests of the country during this difficult and unprecedented time. It is vital that the Coronavirus Bill, brought in by the Government, advising against all non-essential travel, is followed.

“The health and welfare of the public is incredibly important to the water industry, and we are advising customers to follow the Government’s advice on staying at home and avoiding contact with other people. The safety of the public and NI Water staff is paramount.”
