The Management of Contaminated Runoff Water Report has just been published.
The EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) aims to protect and improve the ecological status of water bodies in order to promote sustainable watershed use. Consequently, NRAs must ensure that their water management practices meet the requirements of the WFD. This report examines; when should contaminated runoff water be treated to meet the requirements in relevant EU directives (e.g. the WFD), what is the best practice when treatment is mandatory, and what will the research needs on these matters be within the next decade?
The report is available to download here.
