Brexit and water law

Implications for the UK and Scotland

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

The recent heatwaves, and accompanying drought, have flagged up the importance of water policy – and water law – as we seek to manage scarcity in the face of climate change. Currently, water laws in UK jurisdictions implement a set of EU directives applying to water quality, water resource management and service standards (drinking water and waste water). Focussing mainly on the UK and Scotland, I consider Brexit’s potential impact on UK water policy currently covered by the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD), and the directives on drinking water quality and urban waste water treatment.
