Significant Water Management Issues (SWMI) in Northern Ireland

Consultation – Significant Water Management Issues (SWMI) in Northern Ireland

A new report has recently been published by the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs, which highlights how our water environment remains under pressure from human activity, with the main pressures coming from agriculture and waste water related impacts. This report presents the significant water management issues facing Northern Ireland in the third cycle river basin management plan based on analysis by the Northern Ireland Environment Agency.

Through this Consultation you, all stakeholders and members of the public are invited to give your views on:

  • What you think are the significant water management issues in Northern Ireland?
  • How you think we can all work together to address these issues for the overarching benefit of all the citizens of Northern Ireland?
  • What measures you think should be progressed and how these measures (actions) can be delivered?

The Consultation closes 22 June 2020 at 23:59
