County Groundwater Protection Schemes

County Groundwater Protection Schemes

​​​Geological Survey Ireland has completed Groundwater Protection Schemes (GWPSs) in partnership with Local Authorities, and there is now national coverage of GWPS mapping. From the mid-1990's to the mid-2000's, GWPSs were undertaken on a county-by-county basis, with maps and full reports produced. This work covered about 40% of the country. For the remaining counties, GWPS maps are available.

The maps and data are available for viewing and download on our web-mapping site . County Groundwater Protection Scheme reports and Source Protection reports can be accessed below.
