RAG AGM 2017 Update

The 2017 Annual General Meeting of RAG was held on 29th March 2017.  At the meeting representatives of Dwr Cymru / Welsh Water gave a progress report on their plans to repair and refill Llanishen reservoir.  Their Powerpoint presentation can be viewed by clicking here.

One of the first steps before the engineering work begins, will be to secure the site by erecting a surrounding fence.  A number of RAG members asked for more information about the exact location of the fence, and Welsh Water have now kindly provided a copy of their plans.  These can be viewed by clicking here.  These are the same plans that were submitted to the Cardiff Planning Committee earlier in the year and which have now been approved.

Welsh Water is keen to hear from local residents, and others with an interest in the reservoirs, about the facilities and activities people would like to see at the site in the future.  This is your chance to have your say, and Gwyn Thomas, its Senior External Relations Manager, would like to hear from you.  He can be emailed at the following address: Gwyn.Thomas3@dwrcymru.com.

Reservoir Progress Report - December 2016

Welsh Water have just issued an update on their work at Llanishen and Lisvane Reservoirs.  It can be read online by clicking here.  We are very pleased that they keeping the local community so well informed, and although it will be some time before the reservoir site is reopened, it is very encouraging to think that, at long last, things are moving in the right direction.

Work Begins!

Today Dŵr Cymru / Welsh Water issued a letter to residents who live near the reservoir, which outlined the work that will be starting in early July 2016.  This will involve constructing a work compound area on the old car park by the entrance to the reservoir from Rhyd-y-penau Road.  The full text of the letter and a map can be accessed by clicking here.  The work will involve constructing a perimeter fence around the site, but will also include the eventual removal of the unsightly 'inner' fence around the top of the reservoir banks.  Access to the site will not be possible, for Health and Safety reasons, while this work is undertaken, and we ask all RAG supporters to respect this policy.  Dŵr Cymru / Welsh Water have reiterated their commitment to re-open the site for public access as soon as possible.
