Recommendations on Surface Water Classification Schemes

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. It also sets out UKTAG's recommendations on how the information provided through classification should be used in the river basin management planning process. Other reports in the series will make recommendations on the classification of surface water bodies designated under the Directive as artificial or heavily modified and on the classification of bodies of groundwater.
