One of the eight new Irish Water regional centres will be based in Kilkenny, Minister for the Environment Phil Hogan has revealed.

Speaking this morning, the minister said he was delighted that Irish Water had recognised the strategic importance of Kilkenny and has chosen it for the location of one of their regional centres.

“This is good news for Kilkenny. Each regional centre will employ between 20-30 people and I understand that recruitment will begin straight away,” he said.

“Irish Water will oversee major investment in our water infrastructure in the coming years and the fact that Kilkenny will be a key location for Irish Water is a positive development. The exact location of the centre has yet to be decided by Irish Water.”

Water charges will come into effect in January 2015. Minister Hogan has said that the Government’s goal is to create a world-class water and wastewater system for citizens, that protects public health and the environment.

“A secure supply of quality water will also support job creation and encourage foreign direct investment,” he said.
