North Sea Regional and Local Implementation of the Water Framework Directive (NOLIMP)
Start date: Sep 29, 2002, End date: Dec 30, 2006 PROJECT  FINISHED 

"North Sea regional and local implementation of the Water Framework Directive" (NOLIMP-WFD) had two aims:• To show in a practical way how the WFD can be implemented with regard to procedural, management and practical issues with a special focus on matters that produce best practice for local and regional implementation.• To achieve an improvement in the physico-chemical and ecological water quality in pilot water systems. Achievements: Experiences were gained in implementing the WFD on a regional level by reducing emissions of pollutants into pilot water schemes. Furthermore, experience with innovative technologies to reduce emissions and to improve biodiversity in pilot water schemes were also achieved. Other benefits included experience with management groups and other stakeholders and insight into the social aspects and cost-effectiveness of integrated water management.The project has contributed to better water quality through field trials on reconstructing wetland and restoring natural reed banks. The project has succeeded in raising the awareness of the importance of good water quality and the risks of diffused pollution by bringing together municipalities and waterboards, officials, farmers and fishermen.
