Public consultation on Western IRBD - Draft River Basin Management Plan

23 April 2009

We would like to invite you to the Water Information Days that will be held in April and May 2009.

The Draft River Basin Management Plans for the Western River Basin District, and the other River Basin Districts in Ireland, were published on 22nd December 2008.

Public consultation on the draft plans is open until the 22nd June 2009.

The plans set out how we propose to manage our rivers, lakes, groundwaters and coastal waters to ensure their protection. We would like to hear your views on what we have proposed for the waters of the Western District.

So drop in and "Help us Plan" for the future of all our waters!

  • 28th April: Ennis - County Hall, Clare County Council, New Road

Each event will run from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. The information days will give you the opportunity to

  • meet the project team
  • collect information on the Western River Basin District
