Congratulations to the Delgany Tidy Towns Committee who won an outright 1000 euro award celebrating their project work on Water and Communities in the 2021 Tidy Towns Competition last week!  Delgany also received 313 points in Category C, which was the second highest score in their group.  Keith Scanlon has led the work on the Water and Communities projects in the community.  Some of these projects have built over time (starting in 2018) and have generated assessments/findings and continue to gain momentum.  The projects leveraged work on Three Trouts Stream – reviewing river water quality and monitoring biodiversity.  This past year the projects have grown to incorporate other river studies and in this past year also integrated with a Citizen Science project that investigated the Three Trouts River System and shared findings with the EPA and WCC.  Congratulations to all in the community who continue to support the work of the DTT, and congratulations to the committee itself.  DTT would like to acknowledge support from LAWPro, WCC Water Pollution control team and the DCU Water Institute for expert collaboration and guidance.
