Receiving waters

This term is used in the field of hydrology to describe the channels, such as watercourses and soil drainage, via which water can flow into a water body in the form of wastewater, rainwater or drainage water. Examples of natural receiving waters are open streams that take in and discharge water from other watercourses, groundwater bodies and discharge systems.
