I propose to take Questions Nos. 556 and 568 together.

The Mayo Towns and Villages Sewerage Scheme, which includes Charlestown, Cross, The Neale, Ballyheane and Crossboyne is included in my Department's Water Services Investment Programme 2007-2009 as a scheme to start construction in 2008 at an estimated cost of €6.25m. An earlier wastewater proposal to service 80 houses in Charlestown under the Serviced Land Initiative was approved in 2001. I understand that Mayo County Council is reviewing the Serviced Land Initiative proposal for Charlestown in light of the inclusion of the town in the Mayo Towns and Villages Sewerage Scheme.

The Ballyvaughan, Corofin and Doolin Sewerage Scheme is included in my Department's Water Services Investment Programme 2007-2009 as a scheme to start construction in 2008. I approved grant assistance of up to €6.025m for the project in August 2007 following examination of Clare County Council's Water Services Pricing Policy and Economic Review Reports for the project. It is now a matter for Clare County Council to finalise the design in light of the funding available from my Department.
