Welsh Water unveils RainScape project at Dafen Primary School

 

Welsh Water has completed its latest RainScape project to help tackle flooding in Llanelli. Dafen Primary is the third school to be included in the RainScape project.

A new swale and attractive planters have been installed as part of Dafen Primary School’s playground. The design includes new plants and fauna, attracting more wildlife to the area and increasing biodiversity.

Welsh Water says:  “We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to work with Dafen Primary School and are grateful for the help and support from the headteacher and education department. We were able to create a safe and sustainable educational environment, with an interactive element that will play a significant part in reducing the risk of wastewater flooding in Llanelli.” 

An official opening day was held on 4th July 2019 where the new RainScape features were unveiled along with an information board about the project.
