Draft River Basin Management Plan Now Out

The Draft River Basin Management Plan is now published and is a comprehensive view of Environmental Issues. This is a different approach as in the past. This is now just an overview of how Ireland intends to protect the Environment in accordance with EU Directives. This should be the most important overall document in Ireland dealing with Rivers, Water and all aspects of the Environment and how it affects these resources. This time the Plan has been divided into two parts, the first is an overview and has “no Teeth”, although being a good summary of what needs looking at. The Second part, not yet written, is the individual Basin Plans which should protect us. This part is up to us to make the Department of the Environment aware of our concerns and see that the River Vartry is cared for properly.

It is very important that as many people fill in a form and send it in as instructed


The main issues that are of concern that you should address in your form are

  • Water Treatment Abstraction
  • Water Treatment Discharge
  • Water Treatment Pollution

Remember, numbers count so see that your voice is heard.
