Water Framework Directive

The Water Framework Directive (WFD)

The European Water Framework Directive (WFD) aims for a good ecological and chemical quality in all European waters by 2015.

The Water Framework Directive brings the managers of waterways, land managers and various other parties together, with the aim of defining measures to improve water quality. Furthermore, the results of any measures need to be assessed.

Hydrobiological research

Since 1979 Bureau Waardenburg has been involved with hydrobiological research for various assessments. Over this time we have built up expertise is all aspects of the WFD; from defining aims and developing measures for improving water quality to evaluating and monitoring the ecological quality.

What can we do for you?

  • assess a waterbody or watersystem through spatial interventions;
  • assess the potential of a waterway to meet the ecological aims of the WFD;
  • advise over ecological compensation.
