We mentioned the start of publication of the Ministry of Infrastructure’s regulations on water management plans (WMPs) earlier in the year, at that time there was only one pending piece of legislation – the Dniester River Basin Management Plan.

Water management plans – how many will there be?

According to the Water Law, in Poland’s current planning cycle – that is, for the next six years – nine documents have been developed, separately for each river basin area. In January of this year, more regulations appeared for the river basin areas of smaller rivers. Obliked were:

  • Decree of the Minister of Infrastructure dated November 10, 2022. On the Water Management Plan for the Bankovka River Basin;
