Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
Eamon Scanlon (Sligo-Leitrim, Fianna Fail)
On the same issue, in the south Sligo area there is cryptosporidium in the water. A boil-water notice has been in force for practically 18 months. This is very difficult for businesses and families. Irish Water has applied for planning permission. The application is in the planning process but unfortunately it has to be sanctioned under IROPI legislation. I do not believe this legislation has been enforced in this country before but the application is complete and has been sent to the office of the Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Deputy Madigan. Will the Tánaiste speak to her to have this matter resolved so the necessary works on the water supply may be carried out immediately?
