Written answers (Question to Environment)

The Fethard Burncourt Water Supply Scheme Water Treatment Plants Contract was included in my Department's Water Services Investment Programme 2010 – 2013 as a scheme to start during the period of the Programme. On 3 December 2013 I approved funding of €12.3m to enable South Tipperary County Council award the Contract for the Fethard Burncourt Water Treatment Plants DBO Contract. Irish Water is now responsible for the delivery of water services capital infrastructure. It is currently preparing a Capital Investment Plan for 2014 – 2016 that will provide for the transition of projects included in the 2010 - 2013 Water Services Investment Programme.
