Temporary Footpath Closure

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.

Reservoir Update - July 2017

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!

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:
