Water quality and abstraction statistics

This series brings together all documents relating to Water quality and abstraction statistics

This series contains information on the quality of inland and coastal waters and of the abtraction of water from surface, groundwater, tidal and non-tidal sources.

The provision and management of water reources is critical to our health, social and economic wellbeing. However, pollution and flooding can cause significant economic, social and environmental damage. In addition, pressures are being exerted on water quality and our water resources such as climate change, high population densities, and land use patterns.
