Question:

406 Mr. Ring asked the Minister for the Environment and Local Government the position regarding the Shrah to Westport water scheme in County Mayo. [10764/03]

The Lough Mask regional water supply scheme extension from Shrah to Westport is included in my Department's water services investment programme for 2002 to 2004 as a scheme to commence construction in 2004. My Department approved a revised brief for the appointment of consultants to prepare a design report and contract documents for the scheme in November 2000. The submission of the report and documents by Mayo County Council to my Department for approval is awaited.
