Draft Regional Water Resources Plan – North West

Draft Regional Water Resources Plan – North West

The development of the RWRP - North West (RWRPNW) will allow Irish Water for the first time to review water supply needs collectively for the entire North West Region and across the spectrum of risk including quality, quantity, reliability and sustainability. It allows us to consider local options to resolve these needs and larger Regional Options that can address needs across multiple supplies.

The SEA Scoping Report and AA Screening Report for the Regional Water Resources Plan - North West were provided to specified environmental authorities, for the purposes of initial, consultation on the scoping of the SEA for the North West Region. This consultation took place from 01 June 2022 to 29 June 2022.

Feedback from this process will be reflected in the documents published for public consultation in the draft RWRP-NW and associated SEA Environmental Report and Natura Impact Statement. This public consultation will take place in 2022.

The remaining RWRP for the South East Region will be consulted on in the same way, including an initial screening and scoping consultation with environmental authorities, followed by a public consultation, in the next 12 months.
