Water protection planning refers to all measures which serve to the implications of the Water Framework Directive, the Nitrates Directive and the The Framework Directive on the Sustainable Use of Pesticides. These legal obligations have to be transferred into national or even local level and serve as guidelines for the Water protection planning. Indicators on water protection planning could refer to certain measures, which are part of national legislation, e. g. width of buffer strips, duration of restricted periods for fertilisation, range of active substances admitted or maximum surplus of nitrogen budget.
