Production ceased at the site on 21st March 2018

The material deposited here is typically silt pond screenings, degraded plastic wrap material and wood screenings.

The EPA noted that areas of the landfill deposits appear to have been recently opened and tracked through with possible more recent deposits of material.

The licensee has advised the EPA that the rehabilitation measures planned for the bogs under the P0499-
01 licence have been completed. The bogs under this licence are not currently part of the PCAS enhanced
restoration rehabilitation scheme. In December 2018 the licensee submitted a draft rehabilitation plan for
this licence to the EPA for consideration. This draft plan was not approved by the EPA.

Corrective action
The licensee shall provide a site update to the EPA detailing the completion date of rehabilitation measures
such as drain damming onsite. As required by Condition 10.2.2 a review of the rehabilitation plan shall be
submitted to the EPA at least every two years. The licensee is referred to the EPA guidance on this matter.
The review should include detail on the expected outcomes of rehabilitation, goals, key indicators and
trending of monitoring data with a focus on environmental impact. The licensee shall also ensure that
national legislation has been taken into account with regard to the rehabilitation measures undertaken.
