Title: Proposed scheme of charges in respect of applications for consent to discharge to controlled waters
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
The National Rivers Authority has to commit major expenditure on determining, issuing and monitoring compliance with the discharge consents. This is one of the NRA's most important functions. The work was formerly funded by the environmental services charges levied on all rate payers by the former water authorities. These charges have now been terminated. The funding of this work is to come in future mainly from charges to dischargers as they apply for and hold consents. This document outlines the proposed scheme of charges made by the National Rivers Authority pursuant to its powers in section eleven, and paragraph nine of twelve to, the Water Act 1989, which would come into force on 1 October 1990.
