The Public Water Forum will be a watchdog that both bites and barks.

That's according to Tom Collins, who's leading the independent group which is now looking for members.

12 of them will represent organisations in areas like the environment and disability, and another 20 successful applicants will be domestic consumers.

Tom Collins has also confirmed people who don't pay their bills and those protesting against Irish Water will all be welcome to get involved.

He's been outlining the minimum he hopes can be achieved..............

Can't Pay Won't Pay in Donegal are urging people not to become involved with the Public Water Forum, or interact with it in any way.

Cllr Michael Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig says to do so would be to legitimise Irish Water, and that is one of the key purposes of establishing the forum in the first place............
