Taking account of European and
Scottish legislation, SEPA aims to provide a sustainable future for
Scotland's groundwater resources by protecting legitimate uses of
groundwater and providing a common framework for protecting:
- groundwater quality by
minimising the risks posed by point and diffuse sources of
- groundwater resources by
controlling abstractions and influencing developments, which could
affect groundwater quantity.
