Hudghton (Greens/EFA) - Groundwater is a valuable natural asset and must be protected wherever possible. It also is extremely awkward to treat for pollution, even when the source of pollutants has been removed. I broadly support the intentions of the new directive, which would help preserve Scotland's reputation of having a clean, unspoiled environment. There must be a balance, however, so that any new directive that is passed is not unnecessarily obstructive to farmers and agricultural business. For example, in 2003, Scottish farmers faced groundwater charges when those in England did not. As long as this proposal does not produce extra bureaucracy or impractical demands for those who work around groundwater, then I think this directive is a worthy one.
