Kelda Water Services Alpha Limited have successfully managed and operated a number of water treatment facilities around Lough Neagh in partnership with Northern Ireland Water.  To mark the 10 year anniversary of the partnership, staff from both companies, gave up a day to do their bit for the rich natural environment and wildlife habitats around Lough Neagh.

“The volunteers made a significant improvement to our native woodland here at Oxford Island,” said Marcus Malley, Conservation Manager for Oxford Island.  “We are delighted that an important corporate stakeholder partnership has provided our first volunteers for the delivery of the Lough Neagh Landscape Partnership Scheme” said William Burke, Manager of the Lough Neagh Landscape Partnership.
