Written answers (Question to Environment)

Carrigtwohill Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade was included in my Department’s Water Services Investment Programme 2010 – 2013 as a contract to start during the period of the programme.

Cork County Council’s Report on Tenders for the Contract was received in my Department on 18 December 2013. It was not possible to deal with the Report prior to the transfer of responsibility for the delivery of Water Services Capital Infrastructure to Irish Water on 1 January 2014. Irish Water is currently preparing its Capital Investment Plan for 2014 – 2016 and this will provide for the transition of projects which were included in my Department’s 2010 - 2013 Water Services Investment Programme.
