Kildare Firm Remains On EPA National Priority Sites List.

: 07/16/2020 - 12:10

The Kildare based Arrow Group remains on the EPA list of  National Priority Sites.

The Environmental Protection Agency says this list is a "key enforcement tool" and is used to "target enforcement efforts at the poorest performing sites and to drive improvements in environmental compliance."

It adds "Prosecution is often the end result of a site appearing on the list, with prosecutions being initiated against the majority of the sites on the current National Priority Sites list. "

The EPA says, nationally is has been responding to a significant increase in odour complaints, 420, in all.

These were about industrial or waste sites, and were issued from the public in the first six months of 2020

126 such complaints were made during the same period in 2019.

The list system was launched by the EPA in July 2017 to "drive further environmental compliance at industrial and waste facilities. It is based on the previous six months enforcement history at all licensed sites."
