WFD Areas For Action

Views: 124
Openness rating:

This dataset was developed for the River Basin Management Plan for Ireland 2018 – 2021 (second cycle River Basin Management Plan). The Areas for Action are areas where action will be carried out in the second cycle. The data consists of polygon geometry representing the location and extent of the Areas for Action (waterbodies) and tabular attribute data describing the waterbody.

The Areas for Action were selected based on the priorities in the draft river basin management plan, the evidence from the Water Framework Directive characterisation process, and the expertise, data and knowledge of public body staff with responsibilities for water and the different pressure types.

Following the selection process, the Local Authorities Water and Communities Office (LAWCO) undertook public engagement and feedback sessions on the Areas for Action. These were considered in the drafting of the final River Basin Management Plan, which was published on April 17th 2018.

The Action Plan Start Year is the year the Local Authority Waters Programme (LAWPRO) plan to begin assessment work within the Area for Action.

This is not a final dataset and will likely change over the lifecycle of the River Basin Management Plan.
