This report is a sumary of a water resources strategy for Thames Region. Thames Region, shown in Figure 1, comprises virtually the entire basin of the River Thames, from the Cotswolds to east London. The Cotswolds, the Berkshire Downs, the Chilterns and the intervening clay vales fall within the region, along with the highly urbanised Thames Valley and Greater London. With a total land area of some 13,000 km2, the region covers about eight per cent of England and Wales, but is home to nearly a quarter of their combined population. The region's population density is thus three times the national average, which means that human needs impose significant pressures on water resources.
