Title: Humber estuary catchment management plan : action plan : May 1995
Author: National Rivers Authority Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
This Action Plan provides a planning framework to define both a strategy for future management of the catchment and a series of Activity Plans for the NRA, working with others to achieve the vision of the Humber Estuary Catchment. The Action Plan will form the basis for improvements to the water environment outlining the areas of work and investment proposed by the NRA and other responsible parties, within the prevailing economic and political constraints up to a period of five years. The Humber Estuary Catchment Management Plan covers the area from the mouth of the Humber Estuary to the upstream points of salt penetration at Keadby Bridge on the River Trent and Boothferry Bridge on the River Ouse. The plan area has been extended for flood defence purposes on the River Ouse up to Aires Mouth as this provides a natural flood defence boundary. The location of the Estuary and the size of the inputs of freshwater makes the Humber of great significance in relation to the environmental management of the North Sea.
