As has become the norm, the Island is experiencing much drier weather as we enter the warmer months of the year and Manx Utilities is asking residents and visitors to use water wisely.
The final phase of the Regional Sewage Treatment Strategy (RSTS2) will move forward on the basis of regional treatment solutions for Garff and Peel; to deliver the best solution in terms of cost and quality to complete modern day sewage treatment for the Isle of Man.
Manx Utilities is progressing with the replacement of approximately 10km of water main from Ballakew, St Marks to Ballaglonney, Grenaby as part of its investment strategy to upgrade water mains on the Island; and helping to preserve water supplies by eliminating leaks and bursts on its network.
