The Ennistymon, Liscannor, Miltown Malbay and Spanish Point sewerage schemes which are being procured as a grouped project, are included in my Department's Water Services Investment Programme 2004-2006 to commence construction in 2006. My Department is awaiting the submission by Clare County Council of a preliminary report for the schemes.
