The Foyle MLA said;
“Thousands of people across counties Derry, Tyrone, and Fermanagh have been left without water as a result of the ongoing dispute between trade unions and NI Water.
“My party colleague Declan McAleer met with regional development minister Danny Kennedy yesterday to discuss this issue and urged him to recognise the urgency of this situation.
“He impressed on the minister the need for this matter to be resolved as soon as possible. And also requested that a special meeting of the regional development committee be held with a specific focus on the disruption to water supply.
