EPA prosecutes Roscommon County Council

On 27 March 2008 the Environmental Protection Agency prosecuted Roscommon County Council at Ballaghadereen District Court.  The Council pleaded guilty to:

1. Failing to ensure that emissions from the activity did not impair or interfere with the local environment;
2. Failing to ensure that odour did not give rise to nuisance.

On hearing evidence from both an EPA Inspector and some local residents, Judge Browne imposed fines of €5,000 and awarded EPA costs of €8,300.
