Implications of Changing Groundwater Quality for Water Resources and the UK Water Industry Phase I Review and Scoping Study
This study reviewed information on raw groundwater monitoring and quality trends from the water industry, the regulatory agencies and the published literature. Findings showed that monitoring practices still vary widely and that nitrate remains the most widespread water quality problem. Statistical and deterministic aspects of trend assessment and prediction were reviewed. An outline framework has been developed to guide the process of trend assessment. Improved monitoring and data evaluation and a coordinated monitoring strategy between utilities and regulatory agencies, the development of a consistent methodology for trend detection for use in AMP4, and longer term work to improve understanding of trends in groundwater quality were recommended.
