September Hydrology Bulletin
The Hydrology Bulletin for September is now on the EPA website. The bulletin is produced by the EPA in conjunction with Met Éireann, Geological Survey Ireland and the Office of Public Works.
The majority of meteorological stations recorded monthly rainfall totals below their long-term average for September. However, parts of the west and north west recorded higher than average totals with the Newportstation in County Mayo recording the month’s wettest day and the greatest number of rain days.
During September, most river flows were classed as normal, above normal or particularly high for this time of year. Lake and groundwater levels also rose across the country with all monitored lakes indicating normal or higher than normal levels, and 86% of groundwater monitoring wells indicating normal or above normal levels for September.
