The Kilmacow sewerage scheme has been approved for funding under the rural towns and villages initiative of my Department's Water Services Investment Programme 2003-2005 at an estimated cost of €2.7 million.

I understand that Kilkenny County Council has invited expressions of interest from consulting engineers in regard to the preparation of tender documents for the scheme and supervision of the construction phase in due course.
