Measuring success

Targets are being developed for the Action Plan, that relate to the overall objective of improving water quality and reducing the risk of algal blooms. Targets are also being developed for annual programs of work, so that success can be measured.

A combination of water quality and implementation targets is provided below, and is suggested as indicators by which to judge the success of the Action Plan.
