Author: National Rivers Authority Welsh Region
Document Type: Monograph
Throughout this document the terms SWANSEA BAY (THE BAY) and INNER SWANSEA BAY (INNER BAY) refer to all tidal waters (coastal and estuarine) in the following geographical limits. Consultation will be required throughout the scheme design process on all design proposals pertinent to environmental impact matters. Techniques and models used for both hydraulic and water quality modelling will require approval from the NRA as to their suitability and sensitivity analyses will be required as appropriate to the environmental design requirements indicated in this document. The National Rivers Authority reserves the right to amend any conditions in this document as and when future policy is developed and/or statutory objectives are derived for controlled waters. Notwithstanding the environmental standards presently required and detailed herein, it may be prudent for dischargers to consider the possibility of increased standards and additional treatment during the future life of a scheme in order to protect their investment.
