REPLY

Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government (Mr. P. Hogan)

The Upper Liffey Valley S ewerage Scheme (Osber s town Wastewater Treatment Plan t Upgrade Contract) is included in my Department’s Water Services Investment Programme 2010 – 2013 as a scheme to start during the lifetime of the Programme.

In June 2013 I approved Kildare County Council’s proposals to commence the procurement process for increasing the capacity of the treatment plant from 80,000 population equivalent (p.e.) to 130,000 p.e. I understand that the closing date for submission of tenders has passed and that the Council is assessing the tenders received with a view to getting work underway as early as possible in 2014.
