A much needed improvement scheme has been confirmed for the Lifford Treatment Plant and water network.
Cllr Gerry Crawford has welcomed the news from Irish Water that a design and build scheme is to be progressed for the area.
Tender details will be released next month.
Cllr Crawford said: “This, when in operation will help deal with many of the difficulties arising with the present network and will be a welcome development in resolving the ongoing problems experienced in several areas at present.
“Hopefully this can now proceed with no undue delay.”
