Groundwater abstractions affect the water balance in catchments of rivers in hydraulic continuity with groundwater and may lead to reductions in river baseflow. The Environment Agency issues licences for groundwater abstractions and takes into account the risk of such adverse impacts when deciding whether to grant licences and what conditions to associate with each licence. Assessing the impact of a particular licence is a difficult task, but analytical solutions to idealizations of the complex river-aquifer interaction can help guide such judgements. This paper presents a brief review of available analytical solutions and discusses their applicability to real groundwater systems....
