Special Report 65 - Water Services and Affordable Housing Delivery

Published on 24 July 2009

The Comptroller and Auditor General has carried out examinations of two areas of responsibility of the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government - Water Services and Affordable Housing Delivery. The examination of Water Services considered the extent to which the investment provided by the State has resulted in the quality of drinking water in Ireland meeting the minimum standards of fitness for human consumption as set out in national and EU legislation. The examination of Affordable Housing Delivery reviewed overall target achievement under the Affordable Housing Initiative and the contribution of the Affordable Homes Partnership to the initiative. It also considered the problems arising in the provision of affordable housing in changing economic conditions.
