Let’s talk briefly about it’s beginnings.
The Government has embarked upon establishing a new public utility, Irish Water. It would be an independent subsidiary of Bord Gáis, to take over the responsibility for the delivery of water services from local authorities. Water charges have been introduced for domestic users based on usage. A metering programme has been rolled out.
The campaign for Irish Water would like to be seen as fair, open and honest. However this has not been the case. It has stumbled form one crisis to another and alienated it’s public.
