To meet this timetable we have a period between July and December 2021 for the Options Development and Appraisal stage for each wastewater system. We have selected several wastewater systems to progress through the Options Development and Appraisal stage in this first round of the DWMP. Our technical document provides information on how we have selected the systems to include in the first round of DWMPs. Our selection is based on:
- The number of risks in the catchment
- The level of concern (output from the problem characterisation matrix), and
- Feedback from expert colleagues and partner organisations.
The wastewater systems being taken forward through the Options Development and Appraisal for the Medway catchment (and other river basins in Kent), and our indicative programme is set out in the table below.
