Water Matters

We use more than 1,700 million litres of water in Ireland everyday. This water is taken from either surface waters or groundwater and the vast majority of this water abstraction is currently sustainable.However, rising demand and the impact of climate change means that some areas will experience a reduction in availability in the years to come. Action is the only response to the ever-growing threat faced by our global water supply. The change that just one person can make will help conserve and protect our waters. It is important thatYOU consider and understand the issues facing our water environment and know what you can do to reduce your overall impact.

The public are encouraged under the WFD to participate in the River Basin Management Plans and to have input into the future sustainability of their River Basin District. More information on the current status of plans can be found here.
