Dáil Eireann Debate
279. Mr. N. O’Keeffe asked the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government if his Department has been responsible for the delay in a sewerage scheme (details supplied) being put in place in County Cork; and if his attention has been drawn to the fact that the necessary capital allocation was approved for this project in 1999. [9792/05]
Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government (Mr. Roche): The Buttevant sewerage scheme has been approved for funding in my Department’s water services investment programme 2004-06 under the rural towns and villages initiative.
My Department has approved Cork County Council’s contract documents for the sewage collection system and it is a matter for the council to advance the tender process for these works. The waste water treatment plant for Buttevant is being separately procured as part of a grouped design-build-operate contract that also includes Kilbrin and Doneraile. My Department is awaiting submission of revised tender documents for the treatment plants for approval, as requested from the council in October 2004.
