Dumping at Sea Permit Register Number S0030-01
Wexford County Council is undertaking a dredging programme at Kilmore Quay harbour. The dredging involves the removal of up to a maximum of 40,000 tonnes of clean sand/gravel material from the entrance of the harbour and dumping the material approximately 11 kilometres west of the harbour, south of the Keeragh Islands. The dredging will be carried out over a number of campaigns and over a maximum time period of eight years.
We expect to carry out the first dredging campaign in Spring 2020. In accordance with the above permit we will publish information regarding the environmental performance on this website.
