Abstract:The EU policy Water Framework Directive 2000/60/EC (WFD) is known to have significant influence on water management through whole Europe. It establishes a new, integrated approach to the protection, improvement and sustainable use of European’s rivers, lakes, estuaries, coastal waters and groundwater. The result will be a healthy water environment achieved by taking due account of environmental, economic and social considerations. The river basin management plans (RBMP) defines how this should be achieved through the establishment of environmental objectives and ecological targets for water bodies. The WFD sets up a six-year cycle of planning and action with the production of the first RBMP required by the end of 2009. The goal of this thesis is to understand how the official WFD, CIS reports and other translations are used in Member States and in The Netherlands and what the consequences are for the ecology of artificial water bodies, mainly for the case Amsterdam Rhine Canal (ARC) in The Netherlands
