This study describes and evaluates the various ways in which the Agency can identify Small Licence Exempt Groundwater Sources (SLEGS) which, if taken to include springs, are believed to comprise the vast majority of small, exempt sources. The study draws on the experience and views of Agency staff across England and Wales. It reports on the relevant legislation, existing practices, data availability, and the lessons learnt from past initiatives by the Agency to identify these sources. The transfer of relevant information between the Agency and BGS National Well Record Archive is also considered.
