Title: The drought of 1995 : a report to the Secretary of State for the Environment
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
This report has been prepared in response to a request from the Secretary of State for the Environment for an urgent report on the current drought as it affects water resources across England and Wales. The Secretary of State has expressed concern that should the dry weather continue for the next few weeks it could mean that water companies have difficulties in maintaining public water supplies. There is also concern for supplies next summer should the drought continue through the autumn and winter. The NRA has therefore been requested to review the current situation and advise on the actions which should be taken.
