The Water Framework Directive (WFD) is a European Commission Directive intended to integrate river basin management for Europe. All controlled waters, including rivers, lakes, estuarine areas or artificial waters designated under the WFD have overall water quality targets to meet by 2015.

Through this work we have gained experience in preparing funding applications from Regional Flood & Coastal Committee Levy and DEFRA Flood & Coastal Resilience Partnership based funding process.

RIVER RESTORATION

BWB has experience of working across both the private and public sector in supporting Clients by the provision of hydraulic modelling, concept and detailed design services to improve/naturalise watercourses or help create wetland habitat. Our Clients include developers, Local Authorities, Parish Councils and Wildlife Trusts. BWB are also members of the River Restoration Centre.
