Donegal County Council has launched an operation into suspected illegal dumping at a location near Letterkenny.
Council staff were today examining ground at a site close to a main road.
The operation got underway this morning.
Gardaí have also attended the scene today, although they are not involved in the investigation.
It is believed personnel from an outside agency are aiding council staff in the operation.
Following a query from the Donegal Democrat about the operation, Donegal County Council said it is not in a position to comment at this time.
