Written Answers. - Water Supply Scheme.

585.

asked the Minister for the Environment when he will sanction contract documents for zone 4 of the mid-Galway group water scheme.

I presume the Deputy is referring to the preliminary report for stage II, zone 4 of the mid-Galway regional water supply scheme which will serve the Claregalway area. This report is under consideration in my Department at present and I hope to be in a position to give a decision on the proposals for this section of the scheme shortly.
