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

Letter from Mrs. Katharine Bryan to Mrs. Iris Robinson, dated 24 February 2005

You recently asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland a Parliamentary Question about what plans the Water Service has for replacing the Whiterock Bay Sewer; and whether the Water Service plans to provide a storm overflow with a fully operational flap on the outfall; a storm retention tank and pumps upgrade (217468). I have been asked to reply as the issue falls within my responsibility as Chief Executive of Water Service.

Water Service is confident that the main sewer at Whiterock Bay is operating satisfactorily, and there are no plans to replace it. Water Service intends however to carry out a survey and examination of the sewerage infrastructure under the Killinchy wastewater treatment works project. I will keep you informed of any conclusion reached as a result of that investigation.
