Classifying waterbodies affected by abandoned metals mines under the WFD

We were commissioned by the Environment Agency of England and Wales (EA) to investigate whether conventional EQS are suitably protective of aquatic life in waterbodies impacted by abandoned metal mines, or if higher metal concentrations can be acceptable in these waterbodies. Importantly, we provided guidance on how to correctly classify these waterbodies under the Water Framework Directive.
