Jump to: navigation, search

In the Water Framework Directive water bodies that have been physically altered to fulfil important 'uses' such as flood and coastal risk management are designated as Heavily Modified Waterbodies (HMWBs). Under the Water Framework Directive these water bodies are set the alternative target of Good Ecological Potential (GEP), which is achieved when all practical GEP Mitigation Measures are in place.
