    City and county councils are to be allowed to cover the cost of extensive repairs to the old water networks by taking funds from a special water conservation fund.

    The fund had been set aside to install more than 600km of new pipes, some 3 per cent of the national public water network, between now and 2012.

    This published program called the "Water Services Investment program 2010-2012" had earmarked roughly €300m or €100m a year for "Stage 3" works...Stage 3 is where they actually replace old mains. Stages 1 and 2 are where they talk about it , these stages are funded from operational funding not capital funding... I think.

    This €300m funding earmark is being robbed to pay for fixing all the water breaks incurred during the 2010 Frost Outbreaks and that will dramatically reduce overall funding.

    Here is the original list, grouped by River Basin area. Many of these schemes are now cancelled.
