The Kilmacow Sewerage Scheme is approved for funding in my Department's Water Services Investment Programme 2005-2007 under the Rural Towns and Villages Initiative at an estimated cost of €2.84 million.

My Department has approved the Preliminary Report and construction stage budget for the scheme. Under new streamlined procedures I have introduced to speed up progress on the Investment Programme, Kilkenny County Council may now advance the scheme to construction without further reference to my Department.
