General Scheme of the Water Environment (Abstractions) Bill 2020: Discussion (Resumed)

Dr. Eimear Cotter:

On the threshold question, at the moment the 2018 regulations stipulate that those who abstract above 25 cu m. per day must register on the register maintained by the EPA. That would be carried over into this Bill if it is enacted. Thus, amounts above 25 cu m. per day are what we have a record of.
