eC2: Development of national methodology for identification and designation of Heavily Modified Water Bodies (HMWBs)by further development of the national approach

Deadline: 07-May-2019 at 11:59:59 PM (Eastern Time – Washington D.C.) water

This assignment aims at the development of a national methodology for identification and designation of HMWBs by further development of the existing national approach and adaptation of most recent international best practices. The methodology should comply with the Water Framework Directive and the relevant Common Implementation Strategy Guidance documents and should simultaneously consider the local specifics and the identified deficiencies during the previous cycles of River Basin Management Plans (RBMPs). It should largely (at this stage for 3rd RBMP) be based on available data regarding the various modifications and any appraisal guidance for them and any findings of such appraisals. A testing of the methodology with application of the “mitigation measures” methods for all types of physical modifications and uses of the surface water bodies is planned within the frame of the assignment by the use of readily available data.
