Good water quality in our rivers, lakes, estuaries and coastal waters is a precious resource. The Local Authority Water Programme (LAWPRO) works to promote a healthy water environment by identifying water quality issues and finding ways to fix them. This is a new way of working to improve water quality and everyone can play their part.
The River Dunhill Catchment in County Waterford is one of 190 areas prioritised for focused water quality action by LAWPRO. We will be visiting the catchment later this autumn and will be working with the public, state agency partners and the agricultural, forestry and marine sectors to address water quality issues. We also encourage local people to get involved in the management of their local water bodies.
Usually we hold face-to-face meetings with the local community to talk about water quality in their catchment and explain our work however to comply with Covid-19 restrictions, this Community Information Meeting will need to be held via Zoom.
