25 Year Water Service Investment Strategy Welcomed as Key to Future Growth

Oct 29, 2015

Chambers Ireland today (29/10/2015) welcomed the announcement that Minister Alan Kelly has approved the Water Services Strategic Plan (WSSP), which sets out a comprehensive strategy for the future delivery of water services in Ireland.

Discussing the announcement today, Chambers Ireland CEO Ian Talbot, said:”The stable supply of quality water is a key requirement for Ireland’s future economic growth. Not only is water critical for citizens, investment in water services infrastructure is also directly linked to Irish businesses’ ability to compete internationally as well as our ability to attract new foreign direct investment.”

“Ireland has long needed a national and long term strategic view for investing in water services. Today’s approval of a 25 year investment strategy illustrates the merits of a national utility model. During the public consultation process, Chambers Ireland strongly supported the idea of a centrally planned strategic plan for water infrastructure in Ireland. Delivery on this plan will ensure that our water infrastructure meets the need of customers both now and into the future at an efficient cost to end-users.”
