Public Participation in The Identication Of 'Bathing Waters' Under the Bathing Waters Directive 2006/7 Ec Of 15th February 2006 and the Bathing Water Quality Regulations Si 79 of 2008

Jun 22, 2015

Galway City Council is inviting public participation in the identification of Bathing Waters under the Bathing Waters Directive and the Bathing Water Quality Regulations 2008 (SI No 79 of 2008).

The Directive requires that water quality at all designated bathing waters meets stringent microbiological standards in order to protect the health of people who choose to bathe there. City and county councils are required under the 2008 Regulations to identify bathing waters on an annual basis.

This consultation process provides the public with an opportunity to:

  • comment on existing designated bathing waters with a view to continuation of designation,
  • comment on other bathing waters not currently designated but which may be considered for designation.

Comments are invited from interested parties.

Comments or submissions are now invited from interested parties, and submissions with regard to bathing waters within Galway City's jurisdiction should be forwarded to Sinead Johnstone, Executive Engineer, Environment Section, Galway City Council or emailed to: environment@galwaycity.ie

Closing date for submissions is 28th July 2015.
