This is the third national release (November 1994) of the NRA Programme For The Monitoring Of Water Quality and supersedes all previous drafts. The document will be updated as further information becomes available, and new and revised pages will be issued. Footers on revised material will display the Month and year of revision. Any revisions will be accompanied by updated revision control pages listing the revised material. The latest version of the revision control pages should be substituted for this one and retained within the document. This document contains guidelines for water quality monitoring to meet both statutory requirements and the need to assess and report upon the state of the water environment through the General Quality Assessment (GQA) Scheme. It also contains guidelines for water quality monitoring to meet individual Regional needs. Sampling programmes are being reviewed in each Region in accordance with these guidelines. When this review is complete it will be possible for the first time in England and Wales to produce a statement of the National Monitoring Programme with an inventory of sites and costs.
