They "face further enforcement action"

Two agri-businesses are featured on the EPA’s national priority sites for enforcement list for March-September 2019.

Arrow Group, Kildare and Tipperary Co-operative Creamery Limited, Tipperary failed to meet the necessary environmental standards and, therefore, "face further enforcement action", according to the EPA.

Arrow Group Limited includes the activities at this licensed site of Dawn Farm Foods Ltd, TCFG Naas Ltd (also known as The Culinary Food Group), QK Coldstores Ltd, Dawn Farms Distribution Ltd and Maudlins Waste Management Ltd.

The group was placed on the list due to odour and noise issues, while emissions to water was the key issue for Tipperary Co-operative Creamery Limited.

Much-needed investment

Commenting on the latest National Priority Sites List, Darragh Page, EPA Programme Manager, Office of Environmental Enforcement, said: “The latest list includes four sites which have not previously appeared on the National Priority Site in the last publication at the end Q2 2019 and, once again, includes Arrow Group.”

“While the publication of the National Priority Sites list has continued to drive environmental compliance and much-needed investment, the EPA continues to have concerns that environmental issues at some companies have resulted in unacceptable odour, noise, air and water quality impacts.”

Two sites have been removed from the list; Kepak Clonee, Meat and Quinn Cement LTD, Cavan.
