SEPA statement regarding odour issues in Erskine - update

  30 June 2014

SEPA is continuing to receive a small number of complaints regarding the sludge storage at Drumcross Farm, Erskine. SEPA officers attended the area again over the weekend to continue our investigations but failed to substantiate an odour on that occasion.

On Friday 27 June we served an Enforcement Notice on the exempt activity operator, James McCaig Farms, requiring the removal of the sludge from this storage location. The minimum timescale for such a Notice is 21 days.
