Written Answers. - Water and Sewerage Schemes.

  386. Mr. Penrose asked the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government the position in relation to the provision of the new sewerage scheme for Castletown-Geoghegan and its hinterlands; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [26564/04]

  Mr. Roche: Some 12 villages, including Castetown-Geoghegan, have been selected by the national rural water monitoring committee as locations for a pilot programme to test a range of new, small-scale waste [697] water collection and treatment systems. I understand that tenders for the contract that includes Castletown-Geoghegan and five other locations are under consideration by Meath County Council, acting as procurement authority, and that they will be dealt with as quickly as possible.
