Title: Proposed scheme of charges in respect of discharges to controlled waters : an introduction
Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
One of the National Rivers Authority's most important functions is to determine, issue and monitor compliance with discharge consents. The work was formerly funded by the Environmental Services Charge levied on all ratepayers by the former water authorities. These charges were abolished when the domesticrating system was discontinued. The work is presently funded by the general taxpayer. Future funding is to come from charges to dischargers as they apply for, and hold consents. This leaflet gives a basic explanation of the scheme and shows examples of the charges that will be paid by typical dischargers.
