People are being given the opportunity to question Irish Water about controversial plans for the future of water services in the east and midlands.

The draft Regional Water Resources Plan is currently out for a three month public consultation, seeking to provide a more secure water supply for the region for the next 25 years.

This plan includes the controversial Shannon pipeline, which aims to pump water from Parteen Basin in north Tipp to Dublin.

Public Webinars are being held today, tomorrow, next Monday and Tuesday to provide information and allow opportunities to pose questions.
