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

Stage 3 of the Galway main drainage scheme is included in my Department's water services investment programme 2003-2005 to commence construction in 2005. I approved Galway City Council's brief for the appointment of consultants to prepare a preliminary report for the scheme earlier this month.
