Taking in Charge of a Group Water Scheme by Irish Water

Irish Water have established standards and procedures to allow for the taking in charge of a group water scheme. A scheme may apply to be taken in charge by Irish Water via Mayo County Council. A grant, for necessary upgrade works, to allow for the takeover, may be made available on review by Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government, through the Multi-Annual Rural Water Programme (MARWP).
