NIEL Recommendations for Freshwater

  • Allocation of adequate resources to support the full implementation of European Water Policy, and particularly the Water Framework Directive
  • That water abstraction does not damage rivers, lakes and wetlands (i.e. keep wetlands wet)
  • Restoration of Northern Ireland’s water–dependent protected areas
  • Sustainable drainage to manage runoff from roads and buildings (and prevent pollution from entering rivers)
  • Upgrading of sewage systems to reduce damaging discharges into the natural environment
  • Implement flood management schemes that work with natural processes
  • Capacity building among farmers (advice, training) and payments to deliver a healthy freshwater environment
  • Greater water efficiency in homes, buildings, and businesses by raising awareness of the true value of water as a natural resource to be safeguarded for the future
  • Full implementation of River Basin Management Plans
  • Integrated land management to deliver high quality freshwater environments
