Joint Oireachtas Committee on Housing, Planning and Local Government

General Scheme of the Water Services Separation Bill 2021: Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage

Mr. Feargal Ó Coigligh:

It might be helpful to mention for the information of the Deputy that there is an oversight separation group comprising representatives of my Department and the Departments of the Environment, Climate and Communications, Public Expenditure and Reform, and Finance, as well as representatives of Ervia, GNI and Irish Water. That group oversees the full separation project. We have been in existence as a group for the past two years, overseeing the separation project. As part of the work we do in that format, we have monthly meetings and reports of costs arising. These costs were identified very early on and that steering group reviews them on an ongoing basis.
