Reilly calls for greater powers of enforcement for EPA

5th November 2019 - Senator James Reilly

Fine Gael Senator and bye-election candidate James Reilly has called for greater powers of enforcement for the EPA following the latest boil water notice.

Senator Reilly said: “I am calling on the Minister to bring forward legislation to give the people of Fingal greater confidence in their water supply and to show that consequences will follow for dereliction of duty.

“I have made representations on this to Minister Murphy directly and will continue to work on this issue on behalf of the people of Fingal.

“It is deeply concerning for the community that yet another boil water notice has been issued in such a short space of time.

“While the source water may be cloudy, it is crystal clear that the EPA need greater powers of enforcement following repeated failures by Irish Water to implement their recommendations.”
