Elected members of Donegal County Council are demanding a full workshop with Irish Water to address issues in the county.
“We are not asking at this stage,” Cllr Michael Naughton told the council at this month’s meeting, after other similar requests were made by other councillors.
Cllr Naughton has called for a full day county workshop to be held after Irish Water’s clinics with local representatives came to a halt due to Covid-19.
Cllr Naughton said constituents have been raising issues with him over drinking water quality, sewage and connection fees, and he criticised Irish Water’s method of responding to queries through a PR company.
“If there is an issue with Irish Water we need to be the first council to put this on public record.
“Let us be the first council to ask what is going on,” Cllr Naughton said.
Irish Water has told Donegal County Council that it will organise an online workshop for each of the five Municipal Districts before the end of November 2020.
“Following these workshops we will review how best to proceed with councillors clinics in 2021,” the company said.
