Joint Oireachtas Committee on Communications, Climate Action and Environment

ESB Networks: Discussion (Resumed)

Mr. Paddy Hayes:

We think that is the appropriate place to report it. We have just established a more formalised protocol for systematic reporting with each of the local authorities. That will tell us whether it is sufficient to report to them or indeed whether there are aspects of a particular leak or environmental situation that would mean a report would have to be escalated to the EPA.
