Public consultation of draft Regional Water Resource Plan Eastern and Midlands extended

11 March 2022

Irish Water has extended the statutory consultation period of the draft Regional Water Resource Plan Eastern and Midlands (RWRP-EM) and associated SEA Environmental Report and Natura Impact Statement (NIS). Irish Water is now inviting feedback on the Plan and associated environmental documents, which was published for statutory consultation on Tuesday 14 December, until Friday 25 March 2022.

The RWRP-EM is Irish Water’s plan to identify how we will provide a safe, sustainable, secure and reliable water supply to our customers for now and into the future whilst safeguarding the environment. The RWRP-EM will set out how we will balance the supply and demand for drinking water over the short, medium and long term in the Eastern and Midlands. It is a 25-year strategy to ensure we have a safe, sustainable, secure and reliable drinking water supply for everyone.

This is an opportunity to feed into the process of how Irish Water identifies the issues and opportunities for the water supply in your area and how solutions are found, before they are applied to your Region. The draft RWRP-EM and associated environmental reports can be viewed and downloaded on the RWRP-EM section of our website at or at your local authority’s planning office during office hours.

If you have any questions in relation to the RWRP-EM, you can contact our project team at nwrp@water.ie.
