1. Purpose

This consultation proposes several new or updated environmental standards for Scotland's water environment, and updates to some of the assessment methods used for deriving such standards. Scottish Ministers intend to direct the Scottish Environment Protection Agency ("SEPA") to apply these standards and assessment methods in river basin management planning and to guide action to protect Scotland's water environment.
