    all boil water notices we ll address the contamination risks that there to the supply to over one million people today We will eliminate completely the discharge of raw sewage into our rivers and bathing areas We will reduce the level of leakage by 10 per cent and we will significantly improve the drinking water and wastewater capacity across the country to support economic growth and job creation Now in parallel to your question we are going to restructure the delivery model and we are going to take 1 1billion in costs out of the business through operating efficiencies Jennings How are you going to cut 1 500 jobs McNicholas The service level agreement we have with local authorities has as part of it an agreement to transformation of our service delivery model So by implementing modern utility systems first of all what we re doing is rationalising from 31 service delivery models with 31 local authorities to a national utility that immediately creates huge ability for us to create economies of scale which allows us to reduce overheads Jennings That s over 12 years Over the seven years of this plan how are you going to cut 1 500 jobs McNicholas The transformation plan called for that to be done within the term of the seven years So we re going to do that first of all by moving from 31 local authorities down to a single national utility which creates economies of scale That allows us centralised functions it allows us to regionalise things and that allows us to take some of those jobs out We re also going to invest in the technology that allows us to run our treatment plants differently it allows us to retrain and re skill people and it allows us to actually move to the level that a modern utility would have in terms of staffing Jennings Is it all going to be through natural wastage or is there going to be a voluntary redundancy scheme McNicholas I think there ll be a combination of natural wastage I think there will be redeployment within the local authorities and yes I would say there will be some form of voluntary redundancy Jennings Has a redundancy scheme been approved McNicholas What we ve done at this point is that we ve looked at the service delivery model that s there today we ve looked at international benchmarks we ve looked at our expenses and utility and we ve set out what we believe we need to do Later Jennings What about your wage bill I mean if some of the public servants are going to get a pay increase or a pay restoration in this Budget or in the next few because of the long term service deal with the plans that you have in place a 12 year deal isn t that going to increase your overall wage bill McNicholas At the end of the day what we have is got a balance here where we re going to be able to drive efficiencies into it If there are wage increases that are part of that and that s a normal part of any business that you re going to have wage increases Jennings Yeah but you don t have any control over those wage increases They re going to be set by Government McNicholas But we have a service level agreement where we will carry the costs of the staff that are there and if there are wage increases we ll have to take that into account But we have to deliver the efficiencies of 1 1billion That s the reality for any business Jennings Where s the money going to come from This 5billion investment that you talked about Where s it going to come from McNicholas The 5billion it ll come from a number of sources First of all we have a new source of revenue with domestic billing which will bring in 2billion of revenue over the term of this plan As we drive efficiencies into the business that creates cash that s generated for the business and it all creates the capacity for us to borrow money in the marketplace and we ve already funded the business over a billion in borrowings to date Jennings Borrow money from the marketplace I m just looking at your investment plan you talk about the establishment of an effective commercial semi State company This is all at odds with what Eurostat describes Irish Water as being a non market entity controlled by the Government and therefore should be classified within the Government sector Or to quote them again the commercial basis of Irish Water is that of a heavily subsidised public monopoly McNicholas And that s a reality at the starting point so we do not need to pass the NCT to deliver this business plan The Government prudently set out in its capital spending for Irish Water to be on its balance sheet for the term of the plan so we don t need to pass the NCT Over time and one of the things Eurostat did say that it was far too early because it was a start up utility to make a judgement on it So over the period of this plan we deliver and we ve already delivered significantly in the last two years in terms of transforming our water services As we deliver over the next number of years we will start to move on that journey from a public sector public service delivery model to a commercial semi State model Jennings Yes but when you talk about raising capital of 5billion for the course of this seven year plan that s Government borrowing isn t it McNicholas Not necessarily so We ve already borrowed a billion in Irish Water 800million of that in short term facilities have come from our own relationship banks and international banks As a utility as a company in its own
