WFD App

Characterisation is a multi-disciplinary task which involves a wide range of stakeholders. A variety of datasets is also required, many of which are not currently captured or accessible in a centralised system.

The WFD Application provides a single point of access to catchment data which will be useful for a range of catchment science and management purposes, not just those that are specific to the WFD.

Accessing the WFD App

The Application is accessible through EDEN https://wfd.edenireland.ie/ and is available to EPA staff and EPA-funded researchers, as well as staff in other public agencies.

If you have any queries please contact catchments[at]epa.ie
