Title: Strategy for groundwater investigations and modelling : Yare and north Norfolk areas : scoping study
Author: Environment Agency Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
This report analyses the Strategy for Groundwater Investigations and Modelling of Yare and north Norfolk areas. The Anglian Region Strategy for Groundwater Investigations and Modelling was accepted by the Project Approval Board in February 1998. The Strategy was prepared following the publication of the Anglian Region Water Resources Strategy (September 1994). The Water Resources Strategy identified the groundwater resources available for abstraction within the main aquifer units across the Anglian Region and identified the amount of resource which it was believed should be allocated to maintain acceptable river flows. This assessment of groundwater resources was based on simplistic groundwater balance techniques using average climatic conditions. The Strategy for Groundwater Investigation and Modelling (The Strategy) which was prepared in the context of the National Environmental Strategy and the Water Resources Functional Strategy, sets out detailed proposals for the review of the groundwater resources in line with sound science and defensible technical practice. The overall aim of the implementation of The Strategy is to provide a resource management tool that is demonstrably based on sound science and good technical practice. In the process of development of this tool (probably a distributed groundwater model) improved understanding and resource assessments of groundwater systems of main aquifers across the Region will be achieved.
