Kerry County Council has completed its countywide watermains rehabilitation strategy required as part of its water conservation programme. This strategy identifies specific defective water supply networks requiring rehabilitation and/or replacement. The Council is also identifying the works to be included in the Countywide Watermains Rehabilitation Project Phase 1 contract to be progressed and funded under my Department's Water Services Investment Programme 2010 - 2012.

My Department is currently awaiting the submission of additional information requested from Kerry County Council in relation to two advance works proposals for watermains replacement which the Council have submitted. On receipt of the information, my Department will complete its consideration of the proposals and a decision will conveyed to the Council as soon as possible.
