‘Intolerable’ delay to Fethard/Burncourt Water Treatment Scheme

Independent TD Mattie McGrath has described the news that work on the Fethard/Burncourt Water Treatment Scheme is to be delayed once again as a sign of the gross mismanagement of the project by the Department of the Environment.

Deputy McGrath made his comments after he sought confirmation of the exact status of the Scheme through a Parliamentary Question:

“The reply from Minister Phil Hogan is effectively a very polite way of telling us that it is not his problem anymore so go away and stop annoying me. Through the bewildering levels of delays that his Department has overseen in relation to Fethard/Burncourt we are now in a position where responsibility for the delivery of water services capital infrastructure is now in the hands of Irish Water.This is intolerable” he said.
