Ah Marian, if you are taking the word of The EPA as the gospel, the problem is most of the septic tanks built in th is country in the last 10 years will be contrary to the EPA guidelines and will have to be upgraded so i would not be jumoing on that horse
John, i dont agree. I’d say the majority of septic tanks built in the last 10 years are very adequate and working well. Fact is, our coastal towns are pumping their raw sewerage straight into the swilly, mulroy, sheephaven, donegal bay or into the atlantic, thats the clear admission by EPA and thats the states representative body that this government are ignoring because this is not an environmental issue, its a money making exercise….
Brendan, i agree about the communal and town sewage systems, they are problematic, because the some councils wont enforce the regulations. but i have first hand experience of many many septic tanks and percolaion areas installed this last 15 years and i have only seen installed to the correct spec,. and the main problem here is not the septic tank. its the percolation, thats where the effluent is treated, there were very few percolaion areas installed this last 10 or so years and theyt are typically circa 30 sq metres, they are going to be the problem, people wont have the space to put them in.
Isn’t it a load of shit Marian.
more cach from a politician
Cavan sorted out the problem.
Why cannot the rest of us do the necessary and shut up.
