River Vartry Water Management Directive

According to EU Directives, the Easter Region Basin District is responsible to make a plan for the River Vartry and the Basin. The draft form of this plan is available on the website and is Draft River Basin Management Plan. This was published in December 2008 and should be open for comments from the public until July (The exact date will be supplied as soon as I confirm with the ERBD).
It is important that we now focus on this and try and read the document and give any suggestions and corrections necessary. This is an important document and MUST be carefully checked since it will define what can be done to the river in the future.  Any comments to this post will be appreciated.  I am aware that the Fisheries Board have been and will be working with the ERBD to see that their interests are covered, but all of us who are around the River Vartry should be involved. The Fisheries have already commented that the Vartry must be divided into the Reservoirs which are heavily modified and the River itself which is Natural. The document is a good solid foundation for the future but participation can only improve it.
