Protection Scheme Status
 To date GSI has completed groundwater protection schemes for 14 local authorities – Clare, Cork (South), Donegal, Kildare, Kilkenny, Laois, Limerick, Meath, Monaghan, Offaly, Roscommon, South Tipperary, Wicklow and Waterford, and an interim scheme in North Tipperary. Work is presently on-going in counties Cavan and Galway and currently there are requests for schemes from 6 other local authorities.

At present, the schemes available in ‘digital format’ i.e. the most recent schemes, are available for viewing on our web-mapping site.  Appointments to view the older ‘paper format’ schemes can be made by emailing Groundwater Section enquiries (groundwaterinfo@gsi.ie).  Some county reports and source reports are also available by clicking on the links below.
