Defining and reporting on groundwater bodies

This paper sets out guidance on the delineation and characterisation of groundwater bodies as required under Article 5 of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and detailed in Annex II of the WFD. The guidance is required to ensure the requirements of the WFD are met in the 2nd River Basin Management Planning cycle and that future WFD assessments will produce comparable results for each Agency. This paper supersedes UKTAG paper 6(a) on groundwater delineation and characterisation
