Serious concerns over air quality in county Waterford town
Serious concerns have been raised over the air quality in Dungarvan.
Local councillor Conor D. McGuinness has written to the Environmental Protection Agency to request on-site monitoring of the air in the seaside county Waterford town.
Cllr McGuinness (pictured below) said he took the decision to write to the EPA after he received several complaints in recent months about the air quality in Dungarvan.
“People are concerned about the impact of coal smoke and other pollutants on their health and wellbeing,” the Sinn Féin councillor added.
“The EPA can undertake monitoring and produce data on air quality in Dungarvan. The monitoring can provide real-time information and identify pollutants and point to likely sources.
