This revised paper provides the detailed procedures for the translation of the definitions of good groundwater quantitative status outlined in Annex V of the WFD into an operational classification system.
Revised paper on the procedures for translating the definitions of good groundwater chemical status into an operational classification system.
This paper provides an outline of the methods that will be used to report confidence in the classification of groundwater bodies. It should be read in conjunction with UK Technical Advisory Group (UKTAG) papers 11b(i) and 11b(ii), which provide guidance on groundwater classification.
This report on the classification of surface waters is one of a series of reports by UKTAG to the UK administrations setting out UKTAG's recommendations and proposals on how waters should be classified for the purposes of the Water Framework Directive.
This paper details the procedures for translating the definitions of good groundwater chemical status into an operational classification system.
The report outlines the proposals of the UKTAG for a classification system. The report suggests how the system would help determine good status under the Directive. The report also looks at the implications for regulation. This proposals are for consultation.
This paper provides the detailed procedures for the translation of the definitions of good groundwater quantitative status outlined in Annex V of the WFD into an operational classification system.
The classification schemes will provide the basis for describing the state of the aquatic environment and for assessing the effectiveness of the programmes of measures in achieving the environmental objectives established through the river basin management planning process.
