197. To ask the Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment if he will provide an update on remediation works at a location (details supplied); the stage the works are at; when the works are expected to be fully completed; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [62873/21]
Work is well under way at this site following the completion of planning and procurement requirements. In December 2020 Dun Laoghaire / Rathdown County Council entered into a contract (valued at approx. €2,000,000) for remediation works on the site. These works are expected to take approximately 9 months to complete. While work commenced in May this year, due to delays as a result of the national response to Covid-19, the work is now due for completion mid-2022.
To date provision of €420,000 has been made under the Landfill Remediation grant programme to Dun Laoghaire / Rathdown County Council in respect of this project, with grant funding of over €340,000 in 2021.
