Nitrates Directive Report (91/676/EEC): Ireland’s Reporting Obligation

EC Reporting on water pollution by nitrates and action programmes taken in vulnerable zones.

Member States shall, in respect of the four-year period following the notification of this Directive and in respect of each subsequent four-year period, submit a report to the Commission containing the information outlined in Annex V.

Note: While the reporting comes from the EPA, they have confirmed that the summary text on farm activities, measures and inspections etc included in the report come directly from the Department of Agriculture Food and the Marine (DAFM).

The raw data on the farm activities, measures and inspections used by DAFM to create the summary in the report is held by DAFM

For the EPA’s annual assessment of water quality in relation to the nitrates derogation, DAFM provides the EPA with an image/map of the derogation farm locations. The most recent report, which includes the image/map of 2020 Derogation Herd Locations, is available on the EPA website. https://www.epa.ie/publications/monitoring–assessment/freshwater–marine/nitrogen-and-phosphorus-concentrations-in-irish-waters-2020.php
