A three-year project, WaterPro, undertaken by nine main partners from Northern Europe including the Lough Neagh Partnership, has now recently come to a close.

The project which researched practical methods to reduce farming and mining nitrate run off,was part of EU Northern Peripheries Transnational Interreg Programme.  Partners were from the Faroe Islands, Finland, Iceland, Republic of Ireland, Scotland, Sweden, and the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute in Northern Ireland.

The project included two recent seminars at Oxford Island were the results of the research was explained to local and national stakeholders who are involved in helping improve water quality.

By coincidence the seminar occurred just as the water quality on Lough as Neagh deemed as having improved from ‘bad’ to ‘poor’, indicating that although this is positive news for the lough, there is still much work to be done.  The Lough Neagh Partnership is now working with over 60 farmers along the shoreline helping them apply and participate in the DAERA Environmental Farm Scheme and is now starting to share this best practice water quality information from the Waterpro programme

Gerry Darby, Strategic Manager at Lough Neagh Partnership, said: “Participation on the Water Pro project has enabled our team to work with some of the leading Northern European countries on water quality, hosting partner conferences in Northern Ireland and attending various working seminars.  It will help us develop new practical tools and models for future good water quality management. Whilst the improvement of water quality on Lough Neagh is not as a direct result of Lough Neagh Partnership’s participation on the project, our involvement in the project has been invaluable.”

WaterPro Gerry Darby

Later in this year the Lough Neagh Partnership also hosted a major innovative ecosystem services conference, which again was part of the Waterpro project, focusing on the value of the economic, social and environmental services that are supplied from Oxford Island.

The conference demonstrated the value of the full range of services provided by important landscapes like Oxford Island, from the rich diversity of its wetland habitats and species, to the provision of  quality educational and recreational services.  The monetary benefits of this great natural resource were also identified indicating that the annual economic value of the services provided from Oxford Island were over £2.3 million.

The final seminar in the WaterPro project happened just at the end of May, providing delegates from Lough Neagh Partnership with an opportunity to attend an international conference in Finland, were the final conclusions of the water quality research were presented.

Gerry added: “This three-year European project has brought together like minded partners who otherwise may not have had an opportunity to connect and I am confident that every one of those partners involved will be able to further benefit from the learnings and findings well into the future.”

Lough Neagh Partnership is a non-profit charity made up of representative bodies and stakeholders responsible for the integrated management and protection of the Lough.  It oversees 6 programmes in total including a £3.5 million HLF Landscape Scheme which aims to protect the built, cultural and natural heritage of the Lough.

    Thanks for your concepts. One thing we’ve noticed is banks along with financial institutions are aware of the spending practices of consumers while also understand that most of the people max out and about their real credit cards around the getaways. They properly take advantage of this specific fact and commence flooding your current inbox along with snail-mail box using hundreds of no-interest APR card offers just after the holiday season concludes. Knowing that should you be like 98% of American community, you’ll rush at the possible opportunity to consolidate card debt and shift balances for 0 apr interest rates credit cards. kjjiikm – guided meditation for headache relief
