Answered by Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government Phil Hogan

There are no proposals in my Department’s Water Services Investment Programme 2010 – 2013 that would facilitate the provision of a water supply to the Ballyna Group Water Scheme.

However, under the Programme it was open to water services authorities, in certain circumstances , to make an application to have new proposals inserted in t o the Programme . Kildare County Council has made an application to my Department which might enable the Ballyna area to be served with a supply . Additional information in connection with this proposal is awaited from Kildare County Council.
