Author: Environment Agency North West Region
Document Type: Monograph
The following report summarises compliance with EC Directives in the north-west region for 1996. Ten directives are discussed: Dangerous Substances Directive (95% compliance with EQS in 1996); Bathing Water Quality Directive (60% compliance in 1996); Surface Water Abstraction Directives (75% compliance in 1996); Freshwater Fish Directive (96% compliance in 1996); Urban Wastewater Treatment Directive; Nitrate Directive; Shellfish Waters Directive; Shellfish Hygiene Directive and Habitats Directive. General reasons for non-compliance with a Directive are reported in the main body of the text, however, more detailed information on non-compliance on a site by site basis together with ensuing action plans or pertinent comments are shown in the Appendices. The Nitrate, Shellfish Waters, Shellfish Hygiene and Habitats Directive were not reported on in 1996 in the north-west region, so only a brief description of the directives and any developments are enclosed. This document is intended to provide a snapshot on compliance within the region and if there is sufficient demand will be updated annually.
