EPA challenged

THE Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) press officer has not responded to my letter (Irish Examiner, December 11) in which I suggested she should clarify where they stood regarding human health under section 4 (2) (C) of the EPA Act 1992.

It reads: "Environmental pollution means - the disposal of waste in a manner which would endanger human health or harm the environment and in particular (1) create a risk to waters, the atmosphere, land, soil, plants and animals."

Do I sense a reluctance by the Environmental Protection Agency to accept responsibility for this part of the very act on which the agency is founded.
