This brief Environment Agency leaflet describes Agency's strategies for managing water resources in the Midlands Region. For water management purposes, the Midlands Region comprises the Severn and Trent river basins and all of their sub-catchments. Principal among these are the Rivers Vyrnwy, Tern, Teme, Warwickshire Avon, Sow, Tame, Dove, Derbyshire Derwent, Soar and Idle. The region has a total land area of 21,600 km2, and includes the upper reaches of the Severn basin in mid-Wales, which are also addressed in the Agency's strategy for Wales. The region's landscape ranges from the mountains and uplands of mid-Wales and the Peak District to the agricultural plains of Shropshire, the Vale of Evesham and the lower parts of the Trent catchment. The major towns and cities in the region include Shrewsbury, Worcester, Gloucester, Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Coventry, Stokeon-Trent, Leicester, Nottingham, and Derby. The Agency's strategy reflects these issues. It looks 25 years ahead, and considers the many changes that may occur over this time. Its vision is: Enough water for all human uses with an Improved water environment.
