Provenance information A groundwater status update was carried out in December 2014 (for the period 2007-2012) for a number of the main status sub-tests that caused groundwater waterbodies to be at ‘Poor Status’, both quantitative and chemical, from the first River Basin Management Plan cycle. EPA WFD groundwater quality data from 2007 to 2012 have generally been used where an update has been carried out, with trends based on data from 2000 to 2012, where available. Where the status update has not been carried out in 2014, the results of the status reported in 2011, based on EPA WFD groundwater quality data from 2003 to 2008, have been taken forward. The 2007-2012 status assessment is based on 757 groundwater bodies. A groundwater waterbody boundary review was subsequently completed for the second WFD cycle and the number of groundwater bodies was reduced / consolidated to 513 in the second WFD cycle.
