Hydrometric Programme

The Environmental Protection Agency Act 1992 requires the EPA, after consultation, to prepare a national programme for the collection, analysis and distribution of surface water quanity data. This programme is carried out with cooperation between the following organisations: 

The EPA reviews the hydrometric requirements with each local authority, with each River Basin District and, at national hydrological meetings, with the other hydrological agencies, to review and discuss aspects of the hydrometric programme. This ensures that all requirements are met in the provision of an efficient service to the various local authorities, government agencies, consultants, private industry and the public.

The EPA also maintains the Register of Hydrometric Stations In Ireland.  

These data are available on HydroNet or by contat the Water Data Unit at (01) 2680 138 or 2680 140
