Building on its successful relationship with Northern Ireland Water, WYG, has won a contract to help improve water quality for residents of east Belfast. The Leeds-based consultancy will be designing, managing and co-ordinating construction design management on a new £750k project to reduce out-of-sewer spills to water courses. This project forms part of a larger eight year framework.
For over seven years, WYG has been managing Northern Ireland Water’s Integrated Wastewater Framework which is designed to reduce the risk of flooding and improve water quality for the eastern region of Northern Ireland.
Commenting after the project award, Ernie Spence, Associate, WYG said: “Since the project is located centrally in the Connswater Greenway scheme, the design and construction work will be undertaken considerately to its surroundings.
“The Greenway will create a 9km linear park through east Belfast, following the course of the Connswater, Knock and Loop Rivers, which makes the location environmentally sensitive.
