Author: National Rivers Authority South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Frome an Piddle is the second Catchment Management Plan (CMP) produced by the South Wessex Area of the National Rivers Authority (NRA). The Frome an Piddle is essentially a rural catchment of high amenity and ecological value. The upper part of the catchment lies within the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is characterised by steep-sided valleys. The rivers change in character as they flow through lowland towards Poole Harbour where they drain into the English Channel. The rivers make an important contribution to the rural economy through tourism, agriculture and recreation. The high quality water in the aquifer provides a source both for public water supply and for the rivers which support high quality salmonid fisheries.
