The multi-agency programme of research, currently underway, is investigating the potential impacts on the environment and human health from Unconventional Gas Exploration & Extraction (UGEE) projects/operations.  Field studies are to be carried out in parts of counties Clare, Leitrim, Cavan and Fermanagh and very small parts of counties Sligo and Roscommon.  A baseline characterisation of the quality and quantity of water in these areas will begin shortly to establish the existing quality of groundwater and surface water and improve the understanding of the overlying geology.  This will involve sampling and analysing water across the study areas.
