Waterford Wetland Map Revised

A revised draft map of the wetlands in County Waterford has been compiled. The desk based research project identified a total of 188 potential wetland sites in Waterford based on aerial photographic analysis, analyisis of subsoils within the county and published reports on previously identified wetlands, considerably more sites than the 45 previously reported from the county.

This project undertaken by Wetland Surveys Ireland has located 143 new potential wetland sites in the county. The majority of the sites have little associated information on the wetland habitats that are present or likely to occur on the areas identified. 

A full county wetland survey will be required to address this information deficit.

It is hoped that future wetland surveys of these sites within the county will allow additional site information to be obtained and displayed on the Wetland Map of Ireland.
