River Water Bodies updated for the 2nd cycle river basin plans (2015 - 2021). This dataset was originally created to comply with Article 2(4) of the Water Framework Directive for the 1st cycle river basin plans (2009 - 2015). The data was topologically corrected to ensure that the rivers were within the catchments defined as river water bodies (polygon dataset) for the Water Framework Directive. The original dataset was corrected externally as part of a low flow model project and the corrected features were assigned a Strahler stream order.
