Title: Policy and practice for the protection of groundwater - NRA leaflet
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
This brief NRA leaflet describes Policy and practice for the protection of groundwater. The policy document contains the background behind the ideas and concerns. It also contains standard policy statements which deal with specific types of new development in each of the three zones, in addition to other areas where groundwater is generally at risk. The policy statements, together with the defined source protection zones, the groundwater vulnerability maps and their associated manuals will all help potential developers, landowners, indrustrialists and others to gauge the likely response of the NRA to a particular proposal or activity which might affect groundwater.
