Community Update 25: Minor works update

Wednesday 17th January 2017: Kildare County Council has engaged a contractor to reroute a storm water pipe running along the front of Kerdiffstown landfill site entrance. These works will not impact on the existing storm water situation on the road, however they will require traffic management measures to be put in place. The temporary traffic lights will be in place for approximately one week from January 18th.

Separately, Kildare County Council wishes to advise the local community that a contractor will be carrying out a topographical survey in the area. The survey will be conducted by contractor staff on the ground, and at times the surveyors may make use of aerial drones. Where surveyors need temporary access to private land, the Council would be grateful for co-operation. The Council will be in contact with a number of landowners about accessing their property for survey purposes.

The Project Team will continue to meet with residents and stakeholders over the coming weeks and months to ensure all interested parties are kept fully informed about progress at the site. The Kerdiffstown Landfill remains under the supervision of Kildare County Council, using powers available under Section 56 of the Waste Management Act. The site is managed on a day-to-day basis by a dedicated site manager, a team of security personnel, and other staff to control 'leachate' (the run-off water that percolates through the waste) and landfill gas. Kildare County Council will continue to issue community updates as remedial works on the site take place.
