Written answers (Question to Housing)

The projects currently planned or underway by Irish Water to ensure compliance with the Directive referred to by the Deputy are Shannon Town, Cobh, Mallow, Ringsend, Fermoy, Enfield, Middleton, Cork City, Roscommon Town, Arklow, Athlone and Enniscorthy.

As Irish Water has statutory responsibility for all aspects of water services planning, delivery and operation at national, regional and local levels further detail in relation to the breakdown of Irish Water's capital investment should be sought from Irish Water.

It may be helpful to note that Irish Water has established a dedicated team to deal with representations and queries from public representatives. The team can be contacted via email at or by telephone on a dedicated number, 1890 578 578.
