Emergency cover on water supply welcomed
Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Boylan has welcomed the agreement between the trade unions and NI Water that engineers will attend any emergency disruption to the water supply over the Christmas period.
Mr Boylan said,
“I welcome the fact that despite an industrial dispute is taking place that an agreement has been brokered that will allow engineers to attend emergency situations where the water supply to homes has been interrupted.
“The supply of clean water is a basic human right and no one would be left without water over the Christmas period so this is a welcome move by both the unions and NI Water.
“If anyone has an emergency with their mains supply of water they should use the telephone number 08457 440088 to have the fault reported”
