This booklet analyses water resources in the Environment Agency's North West Region. Demands and expectations of water users, for agriculture, industry and for public supply, place increasing and often conflicting requirements on the environment in which we all share. Striking the balance between these needs is the role of the Environment Agency in its day-to-day task of overall care and management o f the regions natural resources. The north west receives an abundant supply of water, with an average rainfall of more than 1,100 millimetres a year - from over 3,600 millimetres a year in parts of the Cumbrian mountains to less than 700 mm on the Cheshire plains.
