Title: Policy and practice for the protection of groundwater - Anglian Region appendix
Author: Environment Agency Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
This Regional Appendix to the NRA Policy and Practice for the Protection of Groundwater provides information specific to Anglian Region. Details are given on the following subjects: Description of the Anglian Region; Geology and hydrogeology; Main office locations and contacts relevant to groundwater matters; How to use the Policy and Practice for the Protection of Groundwater prior to the introduction of new Groundwater Vulnerability Maps and new Source Protection Zones. This is one of ten Appendices, each one specific to a different NRA region. Although the main document is a national one there are certain considerations, within the headings listed above, that are only relevant to particular regions. Each Appendix is produced to the same format with the necessary extra information included. The Appendices should be read in conjunction with the main document. Emphasis is given to regionally important factors such as the vulnerability of particular strata. The Anglian Region is geographically the largest of the NRA regions, covering an area nearly a fifth of England and Wales (27,000 square kilometres). Its boundaries range from the Thames in the south to the Humber estuary in the North and from the Norfolk coast inland to Northampton. The Region is predominantly rural with a low density of population, but includes several important centres of population growth and industrial activity such as the Mil 'corridor1, Thameside, South Humberside and expanding centres like Peterborough and Milton Keynes.
