The prevention of sewage pollution from cabin cruisers in the River Shannon basin
This study evaluates the current procedures adopted regarding the prevention of pollution from Cabin Cruisers on the River Shannon, specifically on the navigable inland (freshwater) waterway, from Ballyconnell, Co. Cavan to Killaloe, Co. Clare. Preventative methods include the sensitive adoption of legislation and codes of practice, the creation of environmental awareness and the use of appropriate technology. The research methods include a review of relevant literature, consultation with stakeholders, collection of empirical data and statistical analysis to reveal non-biased points o f consensus. The evaluation of legislation reveals it to be layered, but quite complete. The correlation of redundant and emergent legislation could be the most effective tool for future prevention of pollution from Cabin Cruisers in the Shannon River Basin. The involvement of the EPA regarding the creation of a Code of Practice, scrutiny of inspectory practice and policy concerning infrastructure all require urgent action.
