EPA concerned at river pollution by some waste water schemes in Donegal

The Environmental Protection Agency says inadequate waste water treatment facilities in Moville and Raphoe are causing serious river pollution.

The information is contained in a report published today which finds that two towns in Donegal, Moville and Killybegs, are among a total of eleven large urban areas which do not meet the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive requirement to have secondary treatment in place.

The EPA expects work to be completed on both schemes by the end of 2014.

The issue of river pollutiion is also addressed.
