Fine Gael TD for Sligo-North Leitrim, Tony McLoughlin, has said that €216,000 worth of funding for group water and sewage schemes in Co Leitrim will improve water quality and upgrade local water conservation works.
“This allocation is 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,” he said.
“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,” added the Fine Gael TD.
“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,” he said in conclusion.
