Freshwater - 2020 Outlook

What is the 2020 outlook?

Running waters


Management measures will be applied to running waters that already have good status to ensure that protection continues. For waters which have a status below food, objectives have been set which will lead to a step-by-step improvement of the status in the waters over the whole perid of the water management plan, up to 2027, until the good status is achieved.
