Cáilíocht an Aeir in Éirinn

Tuarascáil 2021, January 2023

Year: 2023

Achoimre: Tá cáilíocht an aeir in Éirinn go maith go ginearálta, ach tá ceisteanna áitiúla imníoch a bhfuil tionchar diúltach acu ar an aer a análaimid. Chomhlíon Éire a riachtanais dhlíthiúla uile AE í 2021, ach níor chomhlíon sí na treoirlínte nua WHO bunaithe ar shláinte í 2021. Ba cheart d’Éirinn agus don Eoraip bogadh i dtreo treoirlínte cáilíochta aeir WHO atá bunaithe ar shláinte a bhaint amach.

Research 428: Percolation Testing of Soils for On-site Wastewater Treatment

Authors: Joanne Mac Mahon, Jan Knappe and Laurence Gill, January 2023

Year: 2023

Estimation of soil permeability is a critical aspect of on-site wastewater treatment system design. The findings of this research identify a need to revise the currently available options in the Irish Code of Practice for estimating soil permeability for on-site wastewater system design. In this research, a correlation was developed between field saturated hydraulic conductivity (Kfs) and percolation time (T-values) across a full range of Irish soil texture data.
