Hopes pesticide issue in Fanad Water Supply is ‘once off’

 

It’s hoped that the pesticide issue in the Fanad East Public Water Supply is a once off.
The supply has been placed on the EPA’s watch list for pesticides due to exceedances for the pesticide MCPA detected in September and October.
While it doesn’t pose any immediate risk to health, Irish Water says that it is imperative that users of pesticides are mindful of best practice when spraying their lands.
Local Cllr Liam Blaney says there are a number of factors at play, but hopes that it won’t’ happen again:
