Water Framework Directive Groundwater Waterbodies - Cycle 2

Views: 22
Openness rating:

The EU Water Framework Directive (2000/60/EC) (WFD) establishes a framework for the protection, improvement and management of surface water and groundwater. All Groundwater Waterbodies (GWB) are represented as polygons. They are validated by scientists in the Geological Survey of Ireland and the EPA Scientists as meeting the criteria for a WFD GWB. If a groundwater is capable of serving 10m³/day of abstraction, or has other significance, it is designated as a groundwater waterbody.

Provenance information The EPA and Geological Survey of Ireland (GSI) led a joint project to review the physical characteristics and produce updated groundwater waterbodies. The EPA instigated projects to assess and delineate groundwater waterbodies based on updated information about pressures and groundwater dependent wetlands in Ireland. The groundwater waterbody boundaries were updated based on this assessment.
