Delight as funding sanctioned for pier community in west Donegal

first_imgThe community in Curransport have received a huge boost as it was announced that €60,000 of government funding has been granted to upgrade and repair the pier structure in the area. The Local Authority funding programme forms part of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marines’ 2019 Fishery Harbour and Coastal Infrastructure Development Programme.A timeline for the repairs has not yet been scheduled but Cllr Micheal Mac Giolla Easpuig said the funding announcement was ‘exciting’ for the Port Uí Chuirreain area.  He said: “I have been pushing for some time for Donegal County Council and the government to fund repairs to the pier in Port Uí Chuirreain. “There was a large hole in that pier for quite some time and I was really fighting to get it fixed,” he added.  “The water is quite deep around that area and it was badly needed.“But the money will go towards putting a brand new cover over the pier, so they are going to cover the slip, tidy the whole place up, and it should improve the overall area.”Last month, government funding of €172,500 was announced for six pier and harbour communities. “Ideally, we now need bigger money to add to that pier because as I already said, it is very deep water beyond that pier but it is encouraging to see that money being announced,” Cllr Mac Giolla Easpuig added. “It is a great start for that community and there needs in that area.”Delight as funding sanctioned for pier community in west Donegal was last modified: May 1st, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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 read more

CPCB threatens to shut unit of Panipat Thermal Power Station if emission norms deadline not met

first_imgThe Central Pollution Control Board has issued a show-cause notice to the Panipat Thermal Power Station (PTPS) in Haryana, warning that one of its units could be shut down for failing to comply with the deadline to meet emission norms.“PTPS, HPGCL (Haryana Power Generation Corporation), Haryana, is hereby directed to show cause as to why unit 7 of the plant should not be closed in view of non-compliance,” CPCB chairman S.P. Parihar said in the notice dated November 13. The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change had in 2015 come up with new norms for coal-based power plants to cut down emissions of particulate matter (PM10), sulfur dioxide (SO2) and oxides of nitrogen. The earlier deadline for power stations to adhere to these guidelines was December 2017. However, 440 power plants that were to be retrofitted with modern flue-gas desulfurisation (FGD) units, which cut emissions of sulfur dioxide, did not comply with the norms. The Central Electricity Authority then chalked out a detailed plan to retrofit old thermal plants across the country with required equipment to comply with the new norms by a 2022 deadline. For thermal power plants in the National Capital Region (NCR), the deadline was 2019. According to a Centre for Science and Environment report released in February this year, most power plants in Delhi-NCR will fail to meet the December 2019 deadline. The Supreme Court-mandated Environment Pollution (Prevention and Control) Authority had earlier said Haryana’s two coal-based power plants in NCR will be shut down if they fail to comply with emission norms by next year. The other thermal power plant in Haryana is in Jhajjar.last_img read more
