The main compliance issues are causing odour and noise nuisance and failing to properly manage wastewater discharges, according to the EPA.

Three sites in the agri-food sector have featured on the EPA’s National Priority Sites List for Enforcement today (Monday, January 28th) after failing to meet the necessary environmental standards.

The main compliance issues are causing odour and noise nuisance and failing to properly manage wastewater discharges, according to the EPA.

The eight companies face further enforcement action from the EPA to secure compliance and represent less than 1% of industrial sites licensed by the EPA but account for 41% of complaints and 11% of open compliance investigation files.

Four sites have come off the previous National Priority Site List having improved their compliance, the EPA added.

The following are the National Priority Sites for July-December 2018:

  • Arrow Group – Kildare;

  • C & F Automotive LTD – Westmeath;

  • CG Power Systems Ireland LTD – Cavan;

  • East-Cork Landfill Site – Cork;

  • Glanbia Foods Ireland LTD – Laois;

  • Rosderra Irish Meats Group (Edenderry) – Offaly;

  • Saint-Gobain Construction Products (Ireland) LTD – Monaghan;
  • Starrus Eco-Holdings LTF(Munster) – Cork.
