Needles: Left at Swiss Valley Reservoir

Needles: Left at Swiss Valley Reservoir

IN THE EARLY-hours this morning images of used needles were shared with residents of Llanelli through a local Facebook page, to warn them of the health hazard presented by the used needles which had been left along side the reservoir.

The woman who originally posted the pictures spoke about what her 16-year-old son and his friends had found while walking at Swiss Valley Reservoir.

She went on and explained that: “Swiss Valley Res’ is a place of beauty in Llanelli where many people go to exercise, walk their pets and take their children to run around.”

A local man commented on the issue and said: “Me and my friends go fishing up there, we have just arranged a big litter pic between us, it’s gone shocking up there,

One woman the commented and claimed: “We did pass a tent…it looked like someone was living there! And there are used condoms in the carpark! It’s a shame as it’s a stunning place.”

Another woman shared her views on what had been found: “Clearly not a care in the world for anyone else but themselves! It’s bloody disgusting how they can throw their used needles on the floor knowing full well families and dogs go up there!

“It doesn’t take much to take the needles with you then put them in a bin or go and dispose of them in the hospital!”

Sharon Delahaye contacted Welsh Water about the littering issue at the reservoir over the past week and on Wednesday morning sent the images onto them of the needles which had been found.

Welsh Water responded by saying: “thanks for making us aware of this. I have passed all the information to the reservoir manager who has advised they have staff attending site tomorrow morning to investigate this.”
