  • Environment

    Cork is the largest County in Ireland, covering an area of approximately 7,453 sq. km. Cork is noted for its varied scenery and its combination of rural settlements and large urban areas. Cork County Council was one of the first local authorities in Ireland to establish a dedicated Environment Department in 1977.

    The Environment Department monitors, analyses and reports on the quality of air, water and waste water in County Cork, in accordance with EU and national legislation. It also provides information on environmental matters to the public and to other County Council departments. The overall purpose of the Department is 'protecting and enhancing our environment for present and future generations.'
