    No. You need to factor in non-domestic customers. Intel alone for example uses as much water as some of the smaller counties.

    In any event this is unlikely to be handled by the local authorities. I'm assuming this will be done under the auspices of the new water semi-state.
    Which no doubt will be "managed" by the same overpaid, unaccountable public sector incompetents that "manage" the Dublin local authorities.

    It's the senior water guys in the DOE that are making the running on it at the moment. In fairness to them they're pretty good. Procurement of water infrastructure has been pretty efficiently managed in recent times.

    I know of one particular terrace of old houses where the water supply and stop cocks are at the back of the houses and access can only be gained by going through the house. What happens if the occupiers just don’t allow the meter installers into their house?

    300 euro. but wait isnt that 3x property tax. what was that property tax for again? ah sure not to worry. The fitters can break in to mine while they are skulking about outside and take the property tax outta the wifes purse.

    Honestly this govt reminds me more of Fagan every passing day. " youve got pick a pocket or two boys, youve got to pick a pocket or two"

    If that is the case why has DCC failed to introduce a system, like the ESB, which enables the council to invoice the builders/developers/householders and contractors working for utilities companies and NTL for damage caused to the watermains? If the DOE was on top of its remit the local authorities would have been forced to introduce such a system years ago. As I said before until such time as these "managers" and "public servants" are made accountable for their actions the default position, fleece the citizens/taxpayers/householders, will remain in place.
