  • Expensive First Fix Scheme to Spend €2 per Litre of Water – Thomas Pringle TD
    programme on the public pipe network rather than on domestic connections If we look at the figures the scheme proves to be very expensive 7 of the meters read 413 000 in total showed leaks and a total of 30 000 leaks were detected amounting to 20 million litres of water lost each day The Government is committing 51m to fix these leaks and by my calculations that means the Government will spend 2 per litre of water lost based on IW spokesperson figures quoted today Even if this scheme is 100 successful over 40 of treated water will still be going to loss In my view this is a wasteful spend and money would be better used to fix leaks on the public water network This is where the real leaks are says Pringle The amount of water lost each day on the public network amounts to 275 million litres and means they would need 550m in total to address this However a network leakage Programme would be far more cost effective At this rate the 51m used towards the domestic network first fix scheme will prove very expensive There is no incentive for people to fix domestic leaks if they cause no damage or increase utility bills It is purely an attempt by the Government to get citizens to comply while upgrading the meter to home infrastructure to facilitate the future privatisation of our water resources concludes Pringle ENDS Be Sociable Share Previous Story Gov t Says TTIP will not Liberalise Water Services Next Story Update on Funding for Agriculture SMEs Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Name Email Website Comment About admin Contact Info Killybegs Constituency Office Connolly House Bridge Street Killybegs Co Donegal 074 97 41880

  • Moratorium needed on Wind Farm Construction – Thomas Pringle TD
    Wind Farm Construction By admin Tweet Pin It Updated 26th February 2015 At the well attended Finn Valley wind farm meeting last Monday in the Parochial Hall in Killygordan I called for a moratorium on the construction of onshore wind farms I called for a moratorium in response to the lack of consultation with local communities on large scale projects such as this and because of a general distrust in the transparency of the planning process in Ireland There has been no real investment in alternative renewable energy projects such as Biomass as a source of energy and job creation Biomass has the potential to create an indigenous industry around renewable energy creating local sustainable jobs While Apple is setting up a new data centre in Athenry Donegal has once again been ignored as a potential destination for IDA supported companies However when it comes to setting up controversial community sensitive projects such as the proposed Finn Valley wind farm there is no forgetting Donegal as a potential destination of this type of large scale construction which does not guarantee sustainable jobs that suit communities in the area Be Sociable Share Previous Story Topical Issue Seasonal Workers and Social Welfare Support Next Story Killybegs to get new Bio Marine Pla Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Name Email Website Comment About admin Contact Info Killybegs Constituency Office Connolly House Bridge Street Killybegs Co Donegal 074 97 41880 thomas pringle oir ie Latest News Look out for my General Election 2016 newsletter February 11 2016 12 59 pm DONEGAL NOW Donegal TD reveals Minister Lynch will not meet with Save Our St Joseph s Campaign February 11 2016 11 24 am DONEGAL NOW Calls on Burton to provide additional funding for
