Many groups took part in the recent “WaterBlitz” monitoring campaign across the country in May 2021. this is an international EarthWatch project and in Ireland the programme was coordinated by Dublin City University (DCU) who sent out sampling kits on a first-come first-served basis to applicants across Ireland. We have three sets of results from our Longford groups all showing low nitrate and phosphate concentrations – the River Camlin near Newtownforbes and in Clondra Village plus Cloonkeen Stream in Ardagh. Results for these are below. Check out Twitter for lots more on the 2021 WaterBlitz. The final summary report for Ireland is available at: https://dcuwater.ie/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/Binder5WATERBLITZFINAL-compressed.pdf.
