PUBLIC MEETING: Do your local Rivers, Lakes, Streams, Canals and Wetlands matter to you? The Waters and Communities Office are hosting a public meeting to discuss the natural waters of County Laois. If you are interested in water quality, angling, heritage, biodiversity, amenity use or issues affecting your local waterways then this is an opportunity to have your say. We will present information on the latest draft River Basin Management Plan for Ireland 2018 – 2021 along with details on how you can input into the final plan. The Waters Communities Office aims to get local communities more involved in valuing and protecting our local waters and these meetings provide an opportunity for you to have your say. Basil Mannion, Community Waters Officer for Laois will present this information and facilitate a discussion on the issues raised. There will be refreshments after the meeting and opportunities to network at The Castle Arms Hotel, Durrow on Thursday 1st June from 7pm.
