Title: The Dee regulation scheme (bilingual)
Author: National Rivers Authority Welsh Region
Document Type: Monograph
This brief NRA bilingual leaflet describes the Dee Regualation Scheme. The River Dee (Afon Dyfrdwy) rises in the mountains of Snowdonia National Park, to the west of Bala Lake (Llyn Iegid). After flowing through a broad valley to Corwen, it tumbles eastwards through the sp ectacular Vale of Llangollen before breaching the Welsh foothills, near Bangor-on-Dee, and meandering northwards through the Cheshire plain to its tidal limit at Chester Weir. To those concerned with the management of water resources the River Dee represents an internationally famous example of advanced river basin management.
