Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water’s £2 million (€2.3 million) investment to upgrade the water network in the Fairwater, Danescourt and Radyr communities of Cardiff has now been completed.
The work formed part of a £159 million (€185 million) investment to deliver improvements on the quality of drinking water for its customers across the country.
The work involved cleaning and laying approximately 3km of new pipework in Fairwater and Danescourt and abandoning 1km of old pipework in Radyr to ensure the water network continues to operate effectively during periods of high demand.
The not-for-profit company worked closely with Morrison Water Services and the local authority throughout the project to plan and deliver the work while minimising disruption to the local community where possible.
Welsh Water’s Project Manager, Johnathan Davies, said: “We’re pleased to announce that we have completed our work on the water network in Fairwater, Danescourt and Radyr. This investment work reflects our commitment to reinvest profits directly for the benefit of our customers and the communities that we serve, helping to ensure they receive clean and fresh water for many years to come.”
Claire Roberts, head of community engagement at Welsh Water, said: “The Welsh Water Community Fund is pleased to support a range of community-based projects throughout the Fairwater and Danescourt communities. As a not-for-profit organisation, customers are at the heart of everything we do, and the funding allows us to give something back to the communities we are investing in.”
