The River Rhymney is a typical South Wales valley river which is gradually recovering from its heritage of coal mining and heavy industry. The water quality is improving, the wildlife is returning to the catchment and the fisheries are being restored. Land reclamation schemes are gradually re- shaping the landscape into a greener and more attractive environment. The road schemes planned are working towards an increasing economic prosperity. People already put the river and its valley to numerous uses including angling, walking, bird watching and cycling and these developments will hopefully encourage wider use of the valley. The Rhymney Catchment Management Consultation Report is the NRA's assessment of the state of the catchment and indentifies all the key issues which need to be resolved. The most important of these issues are outlined in the tables at the end of this summary report.
