Water quality is a key issue for citizens. There has been a major investment by Irish Water. A large sampling regime is in place and a lot of data is available going back several years. The data is currently presented on Irish Water website in tabular format. This can be hard for people to access and understand.

Who is this project for?: Anyone interested in water quality. TBC visitors to Irish Water website. This code could be given to Irish Water or other organisations to display on their website to improve the way they communicate.

Proposed solution?: Code for Germany has developed an app to display water quality data in Germany. This is open source code. This project will use the code that has been developed by Code for Germany and adapt for data which will come from Irish Water or EPA.
