Consultation on the Draft 3rd Cycle River Basin Management Plan 2021 to 2027
Closing date 10 October 2021 at 23:59.
Northern Ireland’s water resources are managed and protected using a catchment based approach which includes rivers, lakes and groundwater as well as coastal and transitional water bodies. The Water Environment (Water Framework Directive) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2017 requires the production and implementation of a River Basin Management Plan (RBMP) in six yearly cycles. The River Basin Management Plan takes an integrated approach, identifying those water bodies which can be classified as being at ‘good or better’ status. It also sets the objectives and a programme of measures for the next six year cycle to help improve those water bodies which are classified as below ‘good’ status.
