Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government (Mr. Roche): A tender report has been received by my Department from the procurement authority, in this case Meath County Council, in respect of the group of sewerage schemes, including Lecarrow, selected by the national rural water monitoring committee as a pilot programme to test a range of new, small-scale waste water collection and treatment systems.

440. Mr. Morgan asked the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government the proposed timeframe for the upgrading of the water system in the Fanad area of County Donegal to be completed; when the Glenvar mains will be connected up to the Fanad works; the cost to date; and the costs for the completed works. [7557/05]
Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government (Mr. Roche): The Fanad water supply scheme has been approved for construction in two stages under my Department’s water services investment programme 2004-06. The overall estimated cost of the scheme is €15.8 million of which €900,000 has to date been recouped by my Department to Donegal County Council.
Phase 1 of the scheme, which includes the rehabilitation and replacement of the existing water main network in the Fanad peninsula, is under construction and is expected to be completed by September 2005. Donegal County Council has submitted a revised preliminary report to my Department for phase 2 which includes the connection of the Glenvar mains to the Fanad regional water supply network. The revised preliminary report is being examined in my Department and will be dealt with as quickly as possible.
