Waste Management: Brofiscin Quarry

Volume 712: debated on Wednesday 8 July 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether all appropriate persons have been identified by the Environment Agency Wales in relation to pollution at Brofiscin Quarry; and when remedial action is expected to take place. [HL4564]

The Environment Agency has not yet formally concluded its “appropriate person” determination in respect of Brofiscin Quarry.

Encouraging voluntary remediation is an important objective of the contaminated land regime and the Environment Agency is continuing to explore opportunities for such an approach. The remedial options appraisal outlines the remedial assessment actions required. These actions began in autumn 2008 and are planned to take place over a three-year period.
