Chris Lyttle MLA said: “Now is the time to prepare for winter and I would strongly encourage people to get pipes lagged. We all hope that this is not going to be another difficult winter but it’s best to be prepared for all conditions. It is also crucial that NI Water takes all the necessary steps to ensure that our water supply is unaffected this winter.
“I strongly support the NI Water ‘lag and tag’ awareness raising campaign. It is crucial that people take the action necessary to help prevent burst pipes around the home.”
