Water Framework Directive (WFD); Disproportionate Costs

Price: £30  

‘Disproportionate cost’ represents one of the key tests for an exemption to meeting the objectives of the Water Framework Directive. This project reviewed guidance for disproportionate cost assessment available at the time and tested it using three key challenges to the water industry likely to be faced in RBMP2 as demonstration cases. The key challenges tested were: 1) river flow impacts on aquatic ecology; 2) river eutrophication risk from nutrients and impacts on aquatic ecology; and 3) chemical impacts on aquatic systems.
