Llanishen/Lisvane Res sold
The latest news is that the reservoirs have been sold by WPD to Celsa Steel, the Spanish firm that bought ASW's Tremorfa steel works. Their main aim is apparently to continue using Lisvane Res to supply water to their facility. Others, including RAG are speculating that Llanishen Res will be re-filled and sailing and fishing can resume. This seems doubtful, at least as far as simply refilling it is concerned. I would imagine that having been empty for so long, drying out of the structure will mean that it will no longer be watertight, although I'm not a civil engineer so stand to be corrected.
