This report updates the key indicators of water quality using monitoring data collected in 2023. The EPA undertakes a full assessment of the overall quality and ecological status of Ireland’s waters every three years. The last full cycle covered the 2019-2021 period. In the intervening years we report on the indicators of water quality to provide an annual update on trends in the biological quality and nutrient levels of our rivers, lakes, estuaries, coastal and groundwaters.
