EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation)

This Order brings into operation section 61 of the Water Services Act 2017 which amends schedule 4 to the Valuation Act 2000 by deleting section 21 (of said schedule) which refers to the entire network used for the provision of water services by Irish Water or a person who holds a water services licence. The effect of the amendment is to make the water services network rateable.
