This public dialogue on Significant Water Management Issues (SWMI) was undertaken within
the context of the Environment Agency’s Challenges and Choices consultation.
The Sciencewise supported dialogue was designed to enable public views, ideas and concerns to be fed into final decisions and priorities for the Environment Agency’s updated River Basin Management Plans, and inform the approach to meeting other Water Framework Directive commitments.
There will be a public consultation carried out by the Environment Agency on updated river basin
management plans in September 2014. The final plans will be published by December 2015.
