Islandmagee Community Development Association made the DOE aware of residents’ concerns regarding an “odorous gas” that has been prevailing from the station recently.

A DOE official responded: “I have tasked an officer to investigate a leakage from the pumping station that is causing pollution. “Also, I have passed your report onto the regulators of the pumping station to see if there is a fault that is causing the odour.”
