AIE: Site locations of domestic waste water inspections

Under the AIE Regs to request the following dataset of geographic locations of national septic tank inspections

As per EPA website

https://gis.epa.ie/geonetwork/srv/api/records/8a5209fe-554e-4f09-952c-2e596f813292

The following link (as above) is a dataset that “represents the site locations of Domestic Waste Water Treatment Systems where inspections have been carried out under the National Inspection Plan.

These locations have been captured by Local Authority Inspectors as part of the process of logging inspection details within the Domestic Waste Water Application

The dataset is used by EPA to create various pdf reports but the actual GIS data does not appear to be in the public domain

Statement on the dataset suggests that the locations in this dataset are captured using an integrated map part within the Domestic Waste Water Application whereby the Inspector selects the location on the map. Alternatively, the Inspector can enter the coordinates manually at which point the application then displays the location on the map for verification.

Please provide the data in the GIS format as collected

Note this is not a request for the inspection plans themselves, the annual reports or a breakout by Local Authority areas. It is a request for the mapping data of the inspections

If the dataset includes additional non-confidential fields along with the inspection locations (like the date of the inspection) please include in the file

AIE Request, (24/3/22)
