I understand that Roscommon County Council is currently completing improvements to the Rooskey sewerage scheme in County Roscommon under the devolved small schemes programme, which is partly funded by my Department. Proposals to serve that part of the town located in County Leitrim are included in the Leitrim town and villages scheme which has been approved to commence construction in 2003 under my Department's water services investment programme 2002-2004. A preliminary report for the scheme has been submitted by Leitrim County Council and it is being examined in my Department.
