Irish Rural Link meetings on septic tanks

Phil Hogan, Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government.

Irish Rural Link is hosting a series of information evenings in Westmeath to help bring clarity to and facilitate a better understanding of waste water and the septic tank issue:

Tuesday March 13 Streete Sports Complex 8-9.30pm

Wednesday March 14 Rosemount GAA Sports complex 8.30-10pm

Thursday March 15 Tang Community Centre 8-9.30pm

The objective of the information evenings is to bring some clarity to the debate on waste water/environment and to assist with understanding the details in the recently released draft standards.

The draft standards just released by Minister Hogan, Dept of Environment, sets out in full the details of what his department proposes to include in standards for the operation and maintenance of septic tanks and other waste water treatment systems.

The document was drafted in consultation with officials from the Environmental Protection Agency and local authorities and the Minister as part of the consultation process promised, is now inviting submissions from the public for a one month period up to and including Friday, 30 March 2012.
