The Chief Executive of Water Service (Mrs. Katharine Bryan) has been asked to write to the hon. Lady in response to this question.

Letter from Katharine Bryan to Mrs. Iris Robinson, dated February 2005

You recently asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland a Parliamentary Question about the possible delay in the commissioning of the new Wastewater Treatment Works at Killinchy if there is evidence of seawater regress into the sewerage Infrastructure (217466). I have been asked to reply as the issue falls within my responsibility as Chief Executive of Water Service.

The new Works at Killinchy is currently on schedule for completion and commissioning by September 2005 at an estimated cost of £2.5 million. Under the wastewater project, which involves pumping the flow from Whiterock, Water Service will be undertaking a survey and examination of the sewerage infrastructure in the Whiterock area. The outcome of that investigation will not delay commissioning of the new wastewater treatment works at Killinchy.
