AIE 005-2022

Aurivo Ballaghaderreen

Dairy ingredients plant

Receiving water name and code: Lung_050 (IE_SH_26L030400)

Drinking water river (IEPA1_SH_26L030400) which is located approximately 4.5 km downstream of the installation’s discharge point.

Lough Gara (IEPA1_SH_26_728) is a drinking water lake, which is located approximately 4.96 km downstream of the installation’s discharge point.

Final effluent from the WWTP on site discharges to the river Lung via an Irish Water pipeline.

Cooling water is abstracted from the River Lung and is discharged back to the river downstream along with condensate from the evaporators and dryers. The cooling water discharges a thermal load to the River Lung.

The licensee was prosecuted and convicted under the Environmental Protection Agency Act 1992 as amended on 12 April 2019 for two offences: permitting a specified emission from the installation which exceeded the emission limit values set out in the licence relating to emissions to water and failure during the incident to isolate the source of the emission to identify and execute measures to minimise the emissions/malfunction and the effects thereof, within the period commencing on 3rd March 2018 and 7 March 2018.

In accordance with the European Union (Water Policy) (Abstractions Registration) Regulations 2018 the licensee has registered (R00103-01) this river water abstraction as they abstract 25 cubic meters (25,000 litres) of water or more each day.

Note: release of two licences refused under Art 8 (a) i). Request internal review. Other local authority Section 4s granted to individuals are released under AIE. Even if Art 8 (a) i) applies, the location and terms of the discharge licences should be disclosed. This is a potential Appeal to OIC, as individuals could circumvent AIE disclosure by simply applying for Section 4 licences in their own name, or name of an agent/employee.
