Views: 117
Openness rating:

This dataset contains status results based on the assessment of groundwater chemical and quantitative figures in Ireland. This is drawn from representative monitoring points selected specifically for the Water Framework Directive (WFD) groundwater monitoring programme.

Provenance information A groundwater status update was carried out in December 2014 for a number of the main status sub-tests that caused groundwater waterbodies to be at “Poor Status”, both quantitative and chemical, from the first River Basin Management Plan cycle. Further updates will be made to groundwater waterbody status in 2015 following the completion of a groundwater waterbody boundary review (physical characterisation) and further risk characterisation. EPA WFD groundwater quality data from 2007 to 2012 have generally been used where an update has been carried out, with trends based on data from 2000 to 2012, where available. Where the status update has not been carried out in 2014, the results of the status reported in 2011, based on EPA WFD groundwater quality data from 2003 to 2008, have been taken forward.
