Freagraí scríofa (Ceist ar Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 176 and 177 together.

The Dungloe and Glenties Sewerage Schemes were to advance as a joint scheme and were included my Department's Water Services Investment Programme 2007 -2009, while the Burtonport Sewerage Scheme was also included in the Programme. Donegal County Council submitted Tender Documents for the Design/Build/Operate contract for the Dungloe/Glenties scheme to my Department in the first half of 2009. During the course of my Department's assessment of these documents, the Council suggested to my Department that the Burtonport Sewerage Scheme be progressed as part of the Dungloe/Glenties joint scheme. Additional information was requested from the Council in relation to the Burtonport proposal to enable a decision on this grouping of the schemes to be made. This information has recently been received and is currently under examination. When this examination is complete a decision will be conveyed to the Council as soon as possible in light of the finalisation of the Water Services Investment Programme for the period 2010 to 2012. I expect to publish the new Programme shortly.
