Author: National Rivers Authority North West Region
Document Type: Monograph
This brief National Rivers Authority leaflet from the North West Region describes river classification. All rivers in England and Wales are classed according to their quality and their ability to support life. Being able to measure the quality of water is vital as it helps the National Rivers Authority identify the most polluted watercourses and take action to improve them and also to draw up plans to protect rivers with good water quality.
