Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
Annotation: EA additional title info: March 1991
This is the first report published by the National Rivers Authority (NRA) under Section 143(2)(a) of the Water Act 1989. This section of the Act places a duty on the NRA to publish information from which assessments can be made of the actual and prospective demand for water, and of actual and prospective water resources in England and Wales. The report represents an important benchmark in the overall understanding of the national water resources situation and is primarily concerned with the demands and resources of water undertakers the needs of which together account for the major proportion of water abstraction. The development of a water resources strategy is underway and future reports will detail this strategy in the light of demands for water supply industry and agriculture.
