Engagement Strategy under the National Inspection Plan: Domestic Wastewater Treatment Systems
The EPA have just launched a new website Catchments.ie which will make it easier for people to get information about the quality of their local river, lake, estuary or the hidden waters below ground. It will also provide information about what people can do to help protect their local water catchment. Catchments.ie allows easier public access to water-related environmental data that has been gathered by the EPA and other bodies, with maps pages and nearly 5000 dynamically generated pages of data that will be updated regularly, including long term trends for many waterbodies. The site will also have stories from local communities around the country. The resource is the culmination of extensive collaboration between the EPA, local authorities and other organisations in compiling key datasets. Read Full Press Release Here.
Catchments.ie are currently running a survey on Septic Tanks and how you relate to your local catchment.
They would like to use the results of this survey to improve communication with local communities, specifically on the possible health and environmental risk from malfunctioning septic tank systems. Please help out by completing the survey on this link or clicking the button above.
