 €780,100 For group water and sewage schemes in Kerry

 Fine Gael TD for Kerry Brendan Griffin as said that € 780,100 worth of funding for group water and sewage schemes in Kerry will improve water quality and upgrade local water conservation works.

 “These allocations to Kerry worth €780,100 are aimed at improving water quality in group water schemes, and at upgrading water conservation works in group water scheme distribution networks. The programme also provides funding for group sewerage schemes.

 “The news was announced by the Minister for the Environment, Community & Local Government today (Wednesday). The Rural Water Programme benefits from funding under the European Regional Development Fund.

 “The Government has also accepted a recommendation from the National Rural Water Services Committee to investigate whether some elements of proposed new group schemes would merit a special contribution to help address funding shortfalls.

 “We are supporting the Group Water sector as an important element of the water industry in Ireland and to continued investment in the sector to sustain and improve quality, standards and performance.”
