Monday, 1st September 2014 is the closing date for submissions from the general public on how Ireland’s public water services should evolve over the next 25 years.

Irish Water has invited submissions from the public on its Water Services Strategic Plan (WSSP) Issues Paper and also on a Draft Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) Scoping Report. The submissions received as part of this non-statutory consultation will be considered in the preparation of the Draft WSSP. 

Every person in Ireland has a stake in the future of Ireland’s water services. The opportunity to have a say in how the service will develop and serve the people of Ireland in the short-, medium- and long-term, is of significant importance.

The public consultation process allows members of the public to air their ideas and thoughts on:

  • How Irish Water can meet customer expectations 
  • How Irish Water should ensure a safe and reliable water supply
  • How Irish Water should provide for the effective management of wastewater
  • Protection of the environment
  • How Irish Water can support social and economic growth
  • Investing in our future

The documents are available to view here, as well as planning counters in Local Authority offices and county libraries.

Submissions can be made to Irish Water:

  • By email at  
  • Online
  • By post to Water Services Strategic Plan, PO Box 860, South City Delivery Office, Cork City, Cork 
  • By phone to 1890 278 278

There will be a second round of public consultation later in 2014, details of which will be announced later.
