Farmers are not Culpable for Poor Drinking Water

There is no scientific proof that farms are in any way responsible for the e coli contamination in the county`s group water schemes according to the Kerry chairman of the I.F.A.Flor Mc Carthy says he totally rejects the EPAS suggestion that farmers in Kerry are in any way culpable for agricultural pollutants contaminating drinking waters in the county. Yesterday`s report from the Evironmental Protection Agency shows that e-coli was found 33 times in over 20 public water schemes in Kerry.Flor Mc Carthy says that local authorities should look at what can be done to improve the situation.
