The work for this report was carried out by scientists from the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH), the UK’s centre of excellence for research in land and freshwater environmental sciences in partnership with the Met Office; technical guidance was provided by the British Geological Survey (BGS), the UK’s premier centre for earth science information and expertise. Funding was provided by the Natural Environment Research Council. The report was compiled with the active cooperation of the principal hydrometric measuring authorities in the UK: the Environment Agency in England, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency, Natural Resources Wales (Cyfoeth Naturiol Cymru) and, in Northern Ireland, the Rivers Agency.

These organisations provided the great majority of the required river flow and groundwater level data. The Met Office provided almost all of the rainfall and climatological information featured in the report. The reservoir stocks information derive from the Water Service Companies, Scottish Water and Northern Ireland Water. Additional data and information has been provided by the Canal & River Trust and a range of individuals and organisations. The provision of the basic data, which provides the foundation both of this report and the wider activities of the National Hydrological Monitoring Programme, is gratefully acknowledged.
