Enda Kenny

Question:

109 Mr. Kenny asked the Minister for the Environment and Local Government the position regarding upgrading of the treatment works at Kiltimagh, County Mayo; if his attention has been drawn to the number of proposals for development that has been objected to and refused on the basis of inadequate sewage treatment works; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [17552/01]

I propose to take Questions Nos. 106 and 109 together.

Kiltimagh sewerage scheme is included in my Department's Water Services Investment Programme 2000-2002 to advance through planning. A brief for the appointment of consultants to prepare a preliminary report for the scheme was approved by my Department last October and the submission of this report by Mayo County Council is now awaited.
