NI Water’s Ballykelly Wastewater project team receives award

NI Water’s project team working on the new Ballykelly Wastewater Treatment Works has been awarded the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) NI Sustainability Award. The award is presented to projects that demonstrate sustainability through innovation and is the third honour received by the project, with recent wins at the Green Apple Awards and the Construction Excellence Awards, organised by the Construction Employer’s Federation (CEF). NI Water’s CEO Sara Venning commented, “The Ballykelly project involved utilising more eco-friendly wastewater treatment approaches, including reed beds and maximising the use of renewables as part of the treatment process. This forward-thinking design will provide a natural, long-term and resilient solution for customers in the Ballykelly area well into the future.

“As custodians of the environment, we are proud of the work completed at the Ballykelly plant and look forward to continuing a similar approach on other schemes across NI as we continue our ambitions to pursue a net zero sustainable future!”
