Water Management Authorisations

BCL has a wealth of experience in the procedures and requirements associated with procuring the statutory authorisations needed for water abstraction and discharge.

BCL’s involvement ranges between provision of informal advice, to full “turn-key” applications, which may involve field testing and / or liaison with the Environment Agency.

Clients benefit from our thorough knowledge of the regulatory framework for authorisations, including the implications of the Water Act 2003, relevant local Catchment Area Management Strategies (CAMS) and the recently revised system of Environmental Permitting.
