Measures data for Wirral Operational Catchment
A measure is an action taken to help achieve an environmental objective in the river basin management plan. Measures are usually delivered through wider programmes of work such as the government’s Rural Development Programme, the Water Industry National Environment Programme, or the Environment Agency’s Environment Programme.
Summary programmes of measures
The river basin management plan contains a summary of the programmes of measures needed to achieve the environmental objectives in the river basin district.

Catchment partnership pages
Each catchment partnership has identified the priority measures that will be implemented in the catchments they lead on. Some of these measures are reflected in water body specific objectives by 2027 others are focused on broader catchment outcomes. Catchment partnerships also describe what more could be achieved for the future by finding solutions to overcome the main barriers identified.
You can view the priority measures identified by the catchment partnerships on this data explorer. To access your local catchment partnership page, click on the appropriate management catchment on the river basin district page and then scroll down to the catchment partnership page link, below the 'Data' section.
