The Inaugural Water Metering Summit

Defining the National Strategy on Water Metering

May 31st 2011, Croke Park Convention Centre, Dublin

In these times of major uncertainty, one decision has been made - domestic water charges will be introduced.

For reasons of structural fiscal reform - we have to broaden the tax base - as well as for sound environmental reasons, domestic water charges will be introduced by 2013. The decision was sealed in December 2010 under the EU/IMF deal with Ireland and water charges feature in the new Programme for Government.

That doesn’t leave long for the national roll-out of domestic water meters to get underway, with an estimated investment of €600m, as a national priority over the next 2 years.

Organised by iQuest, the inaugural National Water Metering Summit is a timely high-level one-day conference that will provide a forum to contribute to defining the national strategy on water metering.
