Rural Water Programme

 

Rural Water Programme

There are over 600 existing Group Water Supply Schemes in the county, of which 141 serve in excess of 50 persons. Responsibility for Group water schemes was devolved from the Department of Environment and Local Government to the local authority in 1997. Since then, all applications for new schemes or for upgrading of existing schemes, and for subsidies for maintenance and operating costs, are processed through the Water Services Department, and funded through allocations from the DoELG.

 

The primary challenge faced by all parties involved in rural water supplies in Ireland is to ensure that the quality of the water supplied to consumers complies with the EU Directive on Drinking Water Standards.
