Title: River Yealm : catchment action plan
Author: National Rivers Authority South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
Catchment Action Plans are designed to be a simple, practical means of directing resources to achieve environmental improvements on a priority basis, between and within catchments. They set out the essential routine tasks, and a five year programme of specific actions for each catchment to meet regional and national targets. Changes may occur where unplanned work such as an extreme drought requires priority. The Yealm is a small river with moderate runs of sea trout and a small run of winter salmon. It has some pollution problems mainly associated with surface run off and silt which has affected some spawning gravels.
