EPA WFD Significant Pressures Data (Update)

The ‘WFD Significant Pressures’ spreadsheet has been updated (https://gis.epa.ie/GetData/Download).

This data is from March 2022.

It contains pressures as used for the Draft RBMP which is currently out for consultation.

Fields have been added to aid the selection criteria.

All waterbody types are included.

Note: an additional field has been added that identifies whether an Extractive Industry Pressure is associated with Peat, Mines and Quarries or both.

Please note that there is ongoing work to align the data displayed on EPA Maps (https://gis.epa.ie/EPAMaps/) with the criteria used to populate this download.

However, these downloads reflect a point in time whereas EPA Maps will display the current situation.
