A presentation recently given by NFGWS source protection officer, Patrick McCabe, at the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH) - Irish Group Annual Groundwater Conference is now available to watch back online.
With this year's theme focusing on 'Catchment Science and Management – The Role of Geoscience and Groundwater,' Patrick's presentation explored mitigation actions that form part of an integrated source protection plan within a drinking water source catchment/zone of contribution.
Patrick detailed the work the NFGWS and group water schemes have been doing in this area and the science that has provided the basis for a pollutant transfer continuum (Source – Pathway – Receptor) approach.
