The Water Framework Directive objectives are implemented through River Basin Management Plans and Programmes of Measures.

To enable local authorities to meet their objectives, they have established the Local Authority Waters Programme [LAWPRO] to facilitate a co-ordinated regional approach. Tipperary County Council and Kilkenny County Council, acting jointly, have been appointed as lead local authorities to act on behalf of all local authorities in managing this Programme. The Programme has two elements; The Communities Team and The Catchment Assessment Team.
