ICMSA President Describes EPA Report As “Jaw-Dropping”


The ICMSA President is describing the Environmental Protection Agency report which shows that 26 towns and villages are not connected to a wastewater treatment as “jaw-dropping”.
Pat McCormack believes that any single farmer in Ireland would find himself in Court for even one instance of such gross negligence – much less an ongoing daily basis.
The farmer leader based in Tipperary says ‘yet again’ we were being treated to the sight of numerous official agencies and councils failing abjectly to carry out tasks that those very same agencies and councils were actually prosecuting farmers and other individuals for on grounds of alleged non-compliance.
Mr McCormack says the Government is happy to give its own resourced agencies up to 20 years to resolve their issues.
