PLEASE NOTE: The Mitigation Measures Manual has now been updated. You can find a link to the updated version on our SC120019 project page


Following a review of the scientific evidence base, this project has produced on online manual to meet the requirements of the Water Framework Directive and provide a single source of advice for a wide range of practitioners and river and coastal managers. It signposts users to the best available guidance for different types of engineering activity, and will be updated in the future as more knowledge and information becomes available. It provides guidance on the practical use of measures and their ecological benefits as well as cross-referencing to more detailed technical design guidance.
