The work being undertaken on the Lisvane reservoir valve chamber is taking longer than expected, as it is in a worse state of repair than was anticipated and some bespoke fittings are having to be made to complete the work. This means that Dŵr Cymru/Welsh Water need to extend the closure on the stretch of footpath running behind Rhyd-y-Blewyn Farm and 117 Black Oak Road. It is now hoped that the path will be re-opened by Christmas. A letter from Dŵr Cymru/Welsh Water has been sent out to local households but can also be accessed by clicking here.

As part of their work to renovate the reservoirs, Dŵr Cymru/Welsh Water need to access some of the chambers located along the footpath between the edge of the Lisvane reservoir and Black Oak Road. In order to carry out the work safely they need to temporarily close the stretch of footpath running behind Rhyd-y-Blewyn Farm and 117 Black Oak Road. The closure will begin on Monday 2nd October and the work will take 6 weeks to complete. Further details can be found in the attached letter by clicking here.

Dwr Cymru / Welsh Water have just issued a newsletter on the progress of work at the reservoirs. It can be read by clicking here. A full drain-down of Llanishen reservoir is underway so that the reservoir structure can be checked and repaired before it is eventually refilled. This may mean the site is closed a bit longer than originally anticipated but we are pleased that Welsh Water is doing a thorough job, so that the reservoirs can be enjoyed for many years to come!
