About the event

Irish Water is to take over the water investment and maintenance programmes of the 34 County and City Councils.  It will be the single point of contact for customers connected to the public mains supply and will be statutorily responsible for investing in and operating water services infrastructure. It will provide drinking water and waste water services to household, commercial and industrial customers in Ireland (apart from those served by group water schemes).   In this presentation John Barry will discuss the challenge facing the establishment of this new utility.
