Abstraction involves taking water, via pipe, from the sea, using it for an industrial process and then returning it to the sea. SEPA regulates the abstraction of water from the marine environment. This layer displays the locations of coastal water abstractions authorised by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA). It includes details of maximum abstraction rates and industrial sector codes. (Sites greater than two miles from coast have been removed)
