This second interim report summarises the results available from the environmental actions carried out by the Environment Agency and Yorkshire Water Services (YWS) to monitor and reduce the impact on rivers of the severe drought experienced in Yorkshire during 1995 and 1996. It is confined to those rivers affected by Drought Orders/Permits and Time Limited Licences (TLLs) granted to YWS, namely the Aire, Calder, Don, Hull, Ouse, Ure and Wharfe. The report largely draws from surveys and other work in the period on hydrology, water quality, river habitats, macrophytes, macro-invertebrates and fish populations. The studies are at various stages of evaluation and comprehensive monitoring of the effects of the drought and the TLLs, taking place over three years, finishes in 1998.
