How to get the best water from your own soil
Posted On July 3, 2021
Deeside’s mineral water plant, which has been supplying drinking water to homes and businesses for the past 12 years, is set to close.
It was due to be decommissioned in 2018 but the decision was taken on Tuesday.
The company said the closure of the plant was a result of the impact of the drought.
“Due to the drought, water quality and other environmental conditions in the community, the plant is now being decommissioning,” the company said in a statement.
The plant supplies up to 1.5 million litres of water a day to homes, businesses and public buildings.
The main plant was closed in the summer of 2017 when it faced a shortfall of nearly 1.2 million litres per day.
The council’s water supply planning committee recommended it would be decomissioned by 2021.
