EPA prosecutes Kildare Chilling Company Limited

On 26 April 2004 the Environmental Protection Agency prosecuted Kildare Chilling Company Limited at Naas/Kildare District Court
The alleged offences related to:

• Odour nuisance

• Failure to comply with emissions limit values for discharges to sewer

• Failure to bund tank and drum storage areas, and failure to notify the EPA of a breakdown of monitoring equipment.

In pleading guilty to seven of the fourteen charges, the court fined the company €2,500 whilst awarding costs totalling €7,000 to the EPA.  The company contested the charge relating to odour, which the court found unproven.
