Thinking globally and acting locally has been made a little easier for Leitrim residents by the development of a new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mapping application called My Local Environment or Timpeall an Ti.
My Local Environment provides easy access for Leitrim residents to information about the environment close to where people live, work or play.
The application is accessible via the EPA website (www.epa.ie) and sits with other useful map tools.
It provides info on air quality, water features, historic mines, soil type, river catchment and aquifer. It will be useful to prospective buyers looking at a new area and also to current residents who want to know more details about the environment they live in.
