Groundwater protection in a Celtic region: the Irish example, 2000, Misstear Bruce D. , Daly Donal,
One of the key environmental objectives of the proposed EU Water Framework Directive is that Member States must prevent the deterioration of groundwater quality. A national groundwater protection scheme for Ireland has been published recently. This scheme shows certain broad similarities to the groundwater protection policy for England and Wales, incorporating the concepts of groundwater vulnerability, source protection zones and responses to potentially polluting activities. However, the Irish scheme is different in several important respects, reflecting the different hydrogeological conditions and pollution concerns in Ireland. Some of these hydrogeological conditions and pollution concerns are common to the other Celtic regions. A major feature of the Irish scheme is the importance given to subsoil permeability in defining groundwater vulnerability. At present, the subsoil permeability is classified in qualitative terms as high, moderate or low. For the protection scheme to be defensible, it is essential to adopt a systematic and consistent approach for assigning subsoil units to these permeability categories. In mapping groundwater vulnerability, it is also useful to take account of secondary indicators such as groundwater recharge potential, natural and artificial drainage density and vegetation characteristics. Another important issue in Ireland is the protection of groundwater in karst areas, since these areas are especially vulnerable to contamination

Water tracing experiments in the Peak District: A study of the drainage of the Bradwell-Eyam-Stoney Middleton area, Derbyshire, UK. MSc thesis, 2000, Whitehead, R.

This project describes the current knowledge of the drainage in an area in the northeast of the English Peak District ranging from Bradwell in the north to Stoney Middleton in the east. Previous work is summarised and the natural and artificial drainage of the area are considered. A series of water tracing experiments were conducted using fluorescent dyes with the aim of determining the direction, speed and nature of drainage from four previously untraced stream sinks. These sinks were thought to be situated close to the basin margins, which separate drainage to the Bradwell catchment in the north from easterly drainage to Stoney Middleton and southerly drainage towards the Wye Valley. The dye tracing experiments added to knowledge of the locations of these boundaries and highlighted the complexity of the drainage in the area. The results are interpreted with reference to previous work, and information on the geology, climate and hydrology of the area is used to put the results in context.
