Written answers (Question to Environment)

The West Donegal Regional Water Supply Scheme is included in my Department's Water Services Investment Programme 2010 – 2013 as a scheme to advance through planning during the lifetime of the Programme.

Donegal County Council has submitted proposals to my Department for a large number of "Advance Work Contracts" on the scheme, including works to improve the water supply in Rathmullen, in advance of submitting the full Preliminary Report for the scheme for approval. These proposals are under examination in my Department.
