Details

The aim of the “new” Methodology is to provide a means of yield assessment which is widely applicable and this is achieved by drawing upon past Water Authority experiences, a review of international approaches and incorporates new concepts along with due consideration to abstraction licensing policy and practice. It should also be stressed that this needs to be done in a context of an ever increasing requirement to afford adequate environmental protection with diministring river flows in some problem catchments being a particular and highly topical issue to address.
