Drainage feature mapping in PMP catchments

Over the last few weeks, Cathal Dowling and Mark O’Connor have been carrying out important baseline surveys of watercourses throughout our 8 PMP catchments. 

These surveys, that are identifying previously unmapped watercourses, will help identify connectivity and pathways to Freshwater Pearl Mussel habitat. This information on the drainage network, will help inform appropriate catchment wide farm management. In addition, it is hoped that the baseline data will prove useful in monitoring the success of the Pearl Mussel Programme.
