On the 20 December 1994 the National Rivers Authority commissioned Aspinwall and Company to formulate a draft methodology for the modelling of nitrate concentrations in three Nitrate Sensitive Areas in the Anglian Region, namely the North Lincolnshire Wolds, Sleaford and Aswarby. The methodology should be designed to enable the existing groundwater flow models of the study areas and the WRc Aquifer Nitrate Numerical Assessment Model to be used to, firstly, reproduce historical nitrate concentrations in these areas and, secondly, to examine the potential impacts of the NSA Scheme on future nitrate concentrations. The formulation of the draft methodology is referred to as the Phase 1 study. The later nitrate modelling will form part of the Phase 2 study. This Report is the outcome of the Phase 1 study. In developing the Phase 2 methodology Aspinwall and Company has had discussions with several organisations, including the Agricultural Development and Advisory Service, the Water Research Centre and the University of Birmingham, as well as the NRA.
