They are asking how long has the water supply to the Campus been contaminated? And how often has it been tested? And most importantly, what are the health concerns for those who have been drinking this water?” “I have made contact with both Irish Water and HSE management seeking urgent clarification on this matter. A public statement needs to be made by both bodies about the circumstances that led to this notice to staff and the course of action that will now unfold.”“They also need to confirm that they have notified the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as is required under law and that the EPA are independently investigating this contamination.”Senator seeks answers on contaminated water supply at St. Conal’s Hospital was last modified: October 2nd, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
