The public meeting is expected to outline what is included in the Draft River Basin Management Plan (2018-2021) together with details on how you personally can provide input into the final plan, thus providing you with the opportunity of influence policy.

The Waters & Communities Office aims to get local communities more involved in protecting and enhancing local water bodies.

Mr Ruairí Ó Conchúir, Community Waters Officer for North Tipperary, will present information on the Draft Plan and facilitate a discussion on different issues and interests emerging including funding opportunities for local community projects. The meetings will be an important opportunity to network. Mr Ó Conchúir can be contacted on Tel: 085 808 3715 or 061 496310 or email roconchuir@lawco.ie for more information.
