Sinn Féin Councillor Sandra Duffy speaking following an onsite meeting with Philip Tierney the field Manager for NI Water regarding ongoing sewage issues in the Galliagh area.
Cllr Sandra Duffy said
It’s important to thank NI Water for their prompt action in addressing the ongoing issues regarding the sewers in and around Galliagh.
I have been contacted by a number of residents over the past week regarding separate issues with sewers overflowing. This was a very concerning issue for local residents as some suffer from ongoing health issues which this problem only served to exasperate.
NI Water has now discovered the reason for the sewerage problems and are on site rectifying this to ensure that there are no further incidents.
I would also like to praise them for the work they are carrying out to properties which have been damaged by raw sewage over the past few days.
