Framework Directive Investigation Programme - A Collaborative
The catchment approach is becoming established as the most
suitable way to deliver sustainable water management across sectors
and make recommendations for water quality improvements that
achieve wider outcomes than traditional 'end of pipe'
Natural Resources Wales, Dwr Cymru Welsh Water and Black &
Veatch will jointly present on the collaborative approach used
during AMP5 Water Framework Directive Investigations (Tranche 2),
which covered 56 water body catchments across Wales. These used a
catchment-scale approach to determine the impacts of Welsh Water's
waste water assets on nutrient levels in rivers and their
contribution to failures of Water Framework Directive
targets. The investigations provided proportionate and robust
levels of evidence to enable Welsh Water to target future asset
investments, and for Natural Resources Wales to include relevant
recommendations for River Basin Management Planning.
The presentation will: -
i) give an overview of what needs to be achieved for the Water
Framework Directive and River Basin Management Plans,
ii) explain how the investigation programme was set up to work
in partnership to ensure the future investments and wider efforts
are based on suitable evidence,
iii) provide some examples of technical outcomes for the

The Environmental Law and Policy Implications of Brexit
UKELA Conference, in association with the Society of Legal
Scholars and Bristol University
Time: 9.30am registration for 10am start
Venue: Bristol University
With a referendum on EU membership due by the end of 2017, this
conference considers what a 'No' vote might mean for UK
environmental law and those affected by it. How might Brexit affect
UK environmental policy, so much of which presently derives from
Europe? What about our domestic legislation and other legal
obligations? How can regulators and regulated industries prepare?
Which obligations will continue for trade or international law
reasons? How are agencies and organisations preparing?
The programme features plenary sessions with presentations by
legal academics, practitioners, policy experts and representatives
from the European Commission and the Environment Agency. A key aim
of the day is to map out the big challenges that Brexit poses for
legislators, regulators, businesses and others affected by
environment law, and to identify avenues for further research.
Workshops will provide opportunities for delegates to share their
thoughts on the most pressing issues and the next steps.
The conference aims to draw together environmental law academics,
legal practitioners, regulators and anyone else with an interest in
this highly topical issue. It is organised jointly by the United
Kingdom Environmental Law Association (UKELA), the Society of Legal
Scholars (SLS) and Bristol University.
With grateful thanks to Bristol University for hosting and to
Chris Willmore and UKELA's South West regional group for their
assistance in drawing up the programme. Thank you also to Burges
Salmon for their kind sponsorship of the Conference and to Bristol
Green Capital 2015 for their support.
