A voted provision of €1.2 billion is included in my Department's 2019 Estimates in respect of Irish Water’s domestic water services operational and capital expenditure in 2019. At the end of November 2019 €948.5m of this provision had been provided to Irish Water.

I expect that the full €1.2 billion provision will be drawn down by Irish Water in 2019 before year end.
