Objectives data for Burstwick and Eastern Drains Operational Catchment

The objective is the planned status of a water body that must be achieved or maintained. There are two different status objectives for each water body. For surface waters these are ecological status or potential objective and chemical status objective; for groundwater these are quantitative status objective and chemical status objectives. The water body objectives are derived from the objectives for the relevant individual elements within the water body.

To find out more about objective setting, see the current condition and environmental objectives document. An explanation of terms is in the glossary. You can see the objectives data on the river basin management plan map viewer.
