Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
This Regional Appendix to the National Rivers Authority policy and practice for the protection of groundwater provides information specific to North West Region. Details are given on geology and hydrogeology, main office locations and contacts relevant to groundwater matters and how to use the policy prior to the introduction of new Groundwater Vulnerability maps. This is one of ten appendices that have been produced. Each one is specific to a different NRA Region. Although the main document is a national one there are certain considerations within the headings listed above that are relevant only to this Region. Each appendix is produced to the same format with the extra information included. The appendices must be read in conjunction with the main document. Emphasis is given to Regionally important factors such as the vulnerability of particular strata.
