The PRB Research Fellowship project represented Ireland's participation in the European Commission DG-ENV led initiative to test implementation of the WFD in a network of fifteen pilot river basins as part of the EC Common Implementation Strategy (CIS). The overall aim of the PRBs at European level was to ensure that the guidance documents produced by the CIS Working Groups are applicable to and workable within all RBDs across Europe. Being a participant in several EU workshops on WFD and a member of CIS Working Group C on Groundwater facilitated exposure to WFD implementation in other countries and provided a valuable feedback mechanism to the national working groups in Ireland.Several outputs, especially concerning groundwater, were used in the development of national guidance for Article 5 implementation in Ireland. Towards the conclusion of the PRB project the author acted as national EPA coordinator to collate RBD characterisation and risk assessment results into the format required for EPA's formal reporting on Article 5 to the European Commission.
