This guidance is for planners, applicants for environmental permits and abstraction licences, and landowners concerned with the quality and quantity of groundwater.

Dr Phil Aldous, Director of Water at Thomson Ecology and a contributor to the first edition of the Policy published in the early 1990s, says “Groundwater is an essential component of river flows and a source of public water supplies. This update is welcomed to protect these groundwater sources from deterioration and to maintain a stable and wholesome water environment.”
