18 Oct Delivering Ireland’s Water Services for the 21st Century
Irish Academy of Engineering (IAE) 2011
A joint position paper and report prepared by the IAE and Engineers Ireland (EI) submitted to Government in the context of a proposed fundamental change to the control and management of the service and the introduction of universal water metering and charging.
The report supports the establishment of a national water utility company and the charging for water services. It recommends continuing Government subvention during the transition period, until the utility company becomes self-financing.
