Water Environment (Remedial Measures) (Scotland) Regulations 2016 (S.S.I. No. 19 of 2016).
Type of law
These Regulations provide for the Scottish Environment Protection Agency SEPA to serve a notice ( a remedial measures notice ) on an appropriate person (the Scottish Ministers, Network Rail or any public body or office holder designated as a responsible authority by an order under section 2 of the Water Environment and Water Services (Scotland) Act 2003) requiring that person to undertake specified remedial measures. Remedial measures means action with a view to (a) improving the hydromorphological characteristics of a body of water; or (b) restoring (in full or in part) the hydromorphological characteristics that, in the opinion of SEPA, a body of water (other than an artificial water body) would have if those characteristics had not been changed as a result of physical alterations by human activity. These Regulations set out procedures for notices, and provide for appeal against notices and enforcement of notices, and defines offences.
