Guidance on abstraction and flow regulation pressures on surface waters

The paper sets out UKTAG’s guidance on the framework for the identification of, and assessments of risks from, abstraction and flow regulation pressures on river, lake, transitional and coastal water bodies as required by Article 5 of the Directive. This approach will be adapted by responsible agencies in context of their programmes, methods and available data to ensure the best outcomes for WFD implementation.
