SOS Dublin Bay was formed by a group of volunteers in October 2020 due to the concern of the rapid deterioration of the quality of the bathing water in Dublin Bay. We’re a voluntary group swimmers, beach users, divers and sailors who came together with a shared passion for protecting Dublin Bay from ongoing pollution and the rapid deterioration of the water quality in the bay.
A working group was established
consisting of a number of experts including two scientists (one
oceanographer and one PhD in this field), a lobbyist, a lawyer specialising in
environmental affairs, a marketing and communications, eCommerce and
computer science experts.
The following individuals work in a voluntary capacity for SOS Dublin Bay:
The group would like to acknowledge the assistance of the following organisations: Irish Water, HSE, EPA, Dublin City Council, Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, Dublin Bay Task Force, UCD Acclimatise, Dublin City University.
We have learnt a lot about this complex problem and many of those we met shared our interest and concerns. We thank them all for the time and expertise which has this helped us to understand more about the Dublin Bay environment.
