Groundwater Bodies that require Less Stringent Objectives

The paper sets out UKTAG’s guidance on the:a) the high-level principles that influence the need for less stringent objectives (LSOs) (or ‘lower objectives’) for groundwater bodies;b) an approach used in 2004 to identify initial list of groundwater bodies that will require less stringent objectives. The approach that is described in this paper may be simplified in order to suit individual circumstances.
