Drinking water and wastewater Infrastructure

221 Signatures Goal: 250

The lack of the Local government to implement the correct infrastrucure in a village of >1000 people and up to >3000 in the summer months is detrimental to the village of Waterville a small tourist village on the SW coast of Kerry.For decades now the community of Waterville have pleaded with the County Council and Department of the Environment to fix a situation which they know is harmful to their health and the environment. Expensive water fees are subjected upon businesses in this community for brown discoloured, malodouros and now contaminated water. A boiling notice has been in place and it was learned that samples of the communities water is only sampled to the volume of people that inhabit the area, therefore if you are a village the drinking water will be sampled less often than a town!!! Everyone has a right to clean potable water supplied by their local authority or County Council. Infrastructure is needed and has been for decades to provide this community with clean potable water for drinking and clean bathing water on the beaches for leisure activities. We are a small community, relying mainly on tourism in a beautiful part of the country where everything seems pristine but alas there are major problems, BUT PROBLEMS THAT CAN BE SOLVED IF THE GOVERNMENT ACT ON THEIR DUTIES AND PROVIDE THE COMMUNITY WITH THE CORRECT INFRASTRUCTURE. Please sign this petition to help protect peoples health and heritage and also to help businesses refrain from paying extortionate water fees for a supply that is contaminated. This is not only happening in Waterville, Co. Kerry but probably in many other parts of Ireland and many other countries. Your signature is much appreciated.
