Water is one of our most precious resources and every human has a basic right to sufficient, safe, and affordable water.
The Green Party supports a constitutional referendum on the provision of water to every resident of the nation and to use that opportunity to consider wording which enhances the rights of the environment in our Constitution.
Today, many communities in Ireland do not have a safe water supply, with ongoing boil notices and up to 140,000 households across the country receiving their water through lead pipes. Anticipated increases in population and agricultural growth could put greater pressure on our water supply.
Conservation, investment and fairness need to be at the heart of our water services.
