first_imgThe raw sewage flows through Shaun Boyle’s land.A farmer is pleading with Donegal County Council to find the source of sewage which is flowing through his lands at Falcarragh.Shaun Boyle, who lives at Ballyness, Falcarragh, says the problem has been going on for more than a year.The council have examined the septic tanks of a number of nearby houses but have not found the source of the smell or sewerage. The sewage is flowing into beautiful Ballyness Bay in Falcarragh.“To be honest it’s not rocket science. I suspect the source of it is behind my lands and flowing down into drains alongside my fields.“But I feel at this stage that I am being stone-walled. I have contacted the council on a number of occasions but nothing has ben done about it.“The reality is that this sewage is flowing out into Ballyness Bay. You can see it. It’s raw sewage. That couldn’t be good for the water quality and the wildlife there,” he said.Shaun said he is now pleading with the council to track the sewage up the fields to find its source. “I would just like it to stop. At first I thought somebody must have dumped some sewage and it was a one-off but that has been going on far too long,” he said. FARMER PLEADS WITH COUNCIL TO FIND SOURCE OF SEWAGE STINK was last modified: August 28th, 2014 by StephenShare 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) Tags:Ballyness BayDonegal County CouncilFalcarraghsewagelast_img
