Changes to the Republic of Ireland River Basin Districts for the
2nd Cycle River Basin Management Plans

A single administrative area will be established in the Republic of Ireland portion of the North Western and Neagh Bann International River Basin Districts for the purpose of coordinating their management with authorities in Northern Ireland.

The responsible bodies in Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland are coordinating their water management actions through a North-South Working Group on Water Quality. This group is supported by the North-South Technical Advisory Group and North-South Rivers and Lakes Group. NIEA also participates in the Irish Environmental Protection Agency’s National Implementation Group for Water Framework Directive, which will provide a mechanism for cross-border catchment initiatives.
