Northern Ireland launches environment survey

The Northern Ireland government has launched a £4 million cross border scheme to study the sustainable use of natural resources.

Researchers will monitor levels of carbon in soil and identify groundwater pollution.

The project will provide high quality geological information to ensure sustainable use of Northern Ireland’s natural resources. The research gathered will contribute to use of land in planning decisions and enhance further private sector investment in areas such as mineral exploration.

The area covered by the projects includes Northern Ireland (excluding the Belfast Metropolitan Area) and the six northern countries of the republic of Ireland (Donegal, Sligo, Leitrim, Monaghan, Cavan and Louth).
