Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
Annotation: EA additional title info: March 2001
This brief Environment Agency leaflet describes Agency's strategies for managing water resources in the West Midlands Region. This leaflet summarises the strategy for East Midlands. The East Midlands extends over about a third of the Agency's Midlands Region and roughly half of the Agency's Anglian Region. Principal rivers in the East Midlands are the Rivers Derwent, Dove, Soar, Trent, Ancholme, Witham, Welland, Nene, and their subcatchments. The East Midlands landscape ranges from the Peak District uplands, to the low-lying and intensively farmed agricultural plains of the Fens and the lower reaches of the Trent catchment, to the East Anglian coastal estuaries and marshes. 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.
