Water management plans already being published

Plany gospodarowania wodami

The publication of water management plans (WMPs) is underway. The first document, the Dniester River Basin Management Plan, has appeared in the Official Gazette. This means that we should expect successive submission of PGWs for the areas of the remaining 8 river basins, i.e.. Vistula, Oder, Pregolese, Nemunas, Danube, Elbe, Banovka and Fresh. So it’s worth keeping track of the Official Gazette – we recommend the website of the Internet System of Legal Acts. And those interested in the legislative process itself for individual PGWs can check the documentation on the pages of the Government Legislation Center.

Published water management plans are key planning documents for water management. They apply directly, as an act of law, as they are adopted in the form of an ordinance of the Minister in charge of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs water management – currently the Minister of Infrastructure. In the PGW we will find a breakdown of water bodies, the goals set for them and the deviations from them, as well as protected areas due to m. in. For recreational use or to supply people with drinking water. The provisions of the updated PGW will be in effect for the next six years. What exactly will result from the plans now being published, we will describe in detail in future issues of “Water Issues”.

Importantly, publication is not equivalent to the start of the PGW. The Ministry of Infrastructure’s Regulation on the Dniester River Basin Management Plan sets an effective date of March 22, 2023. This means that the Plans published in 2016, and the goals contained therein, will remain in effect for another 2.5 months, as we presented in the first issue of “Water Issues”. This gives recipients time to familiarize themselves with the adopted and published document updates.
