UKTAG first published guidance on the classification of ecological potential in 2008. This guidance included lists of mitigation measures relevant to the range of adverse impacts on the water environment that the different water uses can have. For impoundments for the purposes of water storage and supply, 12 mitigation measures were identified. These recommendations supersede the existing guidance on assessing whether a measure is in place and adequate for 3 of these 12 mitigation measures, and have been determined following consultation and a stakeholder workshop throughout 2013.

This document provides guidance on the requirements and methods for identifying and assessing statistically and environmentally significant trends in pollutant concentrations and natural parameters in groundwater.
A key aspect of Water Framework Classification is the determination of hydrological and morphological High Status of water bodies.
This document provides guidance on the process of classifying the ecological potential of Heavily Modified Water Bodies (HMWBs) and Artificial Water Bodies (AWBs).
