Abstract/Summary

The UK Hydrological Review provides an overview of hydrological conditions - and water resources status throughout 2006. The series of annual hydrological reviews form 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 and Hydrology, which maintains the National River Flow Archive, and the British Geological Survey which maintains the National Groundwater Level Archive. The reports are compiled with the active cooperation of the principal measuring authorities in the UK: the Environment Agency (EA), Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and, in Northern Ireland, the Rivers Agency (RA). These organisations provided the great majority of the required river flow 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.
