Written answers (Question to Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government)

The Limerick county trunk water mains, Patrickswell/Adare, and Limerick county trunk water mains, Croom link, schemes are included in my Department's water services investment programme 2003 — 2005 to commence construction in 2004 and 2005 respectively. The contract documents for the Patrickswell/Adare element are being examined in my Department and will be dealt with as quickly as possible. I approved Limerick County Council's revised brief for the appointment of consultants to prepare detailed design and contract documents for the Croom link in August 2003.
