Openness rating:

Water Framework Directive (WFD) River Waterbodies (RWB) are the management and reporting units for the WFD. WFD RWB is a polyline shapefile dataset which is formed from a river routes dataset. Waterbodies are assigned types depending on their likely WFD status classification and physical and biological characteristics (typology). This is in line with European Commission CIS guidance on delineation of waterbodies. Since each RWB is attributed with a unique identifier (EU_CD), this dataset can be linked directly to other WFD data sources such as physical characteristics, risk, classification and other objectives.

Provenance information New RWB originate from a defining monitoring station. The monitoring station was used as the location from which an immediate watershed (RWB polygon) for the river was generated. The rivers within this watershed together make the new river waterbody unit. For cycle 1, small tributaries were omitted. In cycle 2, all streams that appear on the 1:50,000 Discovery Series have been included.
