Dry well at Woodburn

news release

In response to InfraStrata’s statement on a dry well at Woodburn, Director James Orr stated:

“This is fantastic news for the local community, our water, our climate and our wellbeing.

The community has endured so much for nothing.  We feel vindicated that this harmful, worthless and ill-conceived project is now over.

Today is a time for celebration. The earth has spoken.

Tomorrow the soul searching begins for NI Water and the several  government Departments whose negligence allowed this to happen without planning permission. It must never happen again. The  democratic meltdown that allowed exploratory drilling in Woodburn can never be repeated.”
