Abstract/Summary

This hydrological review, which also provides an overview of water resources status throughout 2007, was undertaken as part of the National Hydrological Monitoring Programme (NHMP). The NHMP was set up in 1988 to document hydrological and water resources variability across the UK. It is a collaborative programme between the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, which maintains the National River Flow Archive and the British Geological Survey which maintains the National Groundwater Level Archive. Both organisations are component bodies of the Natural Environment Research Council. This report has been compiled with the active cooperation of the principal measuring authorities in the UK: the Environment Agencya, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency and, in the Northern Ireland, the Rivers Agency. These organisations provided the great majority of the required river and groundwater level data. The Met Office provided almost all of the rainfall and climatological information featured in the report and the reservoir stocks information derive from the Water Service Companies, Scottish Water and Northern Ireland Water. Groundwater level data for Northern Ireland was provided by the Northern Ireland Environment Agency. The provision of the basic data, which provides the foundation both of this report and the wider activities of the NHMP, is gratefully acknowledged. A primary source of information for this review is the series of monthly UK Hydrological Summaries (for further details please visit: http://www.ceh.ac.uk/data/nrfa/water_watch.html. Financial support for the production of the Hydrological Summaries is provided by the Environment Agency, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, the Rivers Agency (Northern Ireland) and the Office of Water Services (OFWAT).
