Title: Proposed scheme of charges in respect of discharges to controlled waters
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
The objective of the scheme is to recover the costs incurred by the NRA in carrying out its functions under Schedule 12 of the Water Act 1989 and otherwise in relation to discharges into controlled waters. In achieving this objective the scheme the NRA seeks: (i) To be consistent with the NRAs policies and objectives of consent enforcement and pollution control and with the NRA's general aim of protecting and improving the water environment; (ii) To demonstrate that the costs will be recovered equitably from dischargers in relation to their demands on NRA resources; (iii) Not to show undue discrimination or undue preference; (iv) To be compatible with other NRA charging schemes.
