Mapping Drinking Water against Section 4s (Trade Effluent Discharge Licenses)

Starting to see what maps might be useful.. thanks to my new GIS buddy

It is difficult to get water abstraction points specifically.

EPA redact a lot of data in the Water Abstraction Register, including all Irish Water abstraction points but we think workarounds are possible

A lot of the data is in here, but is not exportable in ways that make analysis easy:

EPA are currently working to improve their mapping, and in fairness as one of the more open government agencies for data

Obviously having a local authority license a trade effluent discharge near a drinking water abstraction point is a bad thing ?

East coast trade effluent discharge licenses need another look, as do Galway, Cork Harbour and some of the border counties
