Author: National Rivers Authority Welsh Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Cleddau catchment is central to the popular holiday area of Pembrokeshire and is rich in wildlife, scenic attractions and opportunities for leisure activities. The NRAs vision for the Cleddau during the lifetime of this Plan is to achieve improvements in water quality through reductions in the impact of sewage discharges and agriculture. In particular, the NRA is keen to see the proposed sewage disposal schemes from Pembroke/Pembroke Dock and Milford Haven become operational within the period o f this Plan The NRA would also wish to have a clear programme agreed with Dftr Cymru to address inadequate Sewage Treatment Works and sewerage systems that contribute to other problems within the catchment. The impact of agriculture on water quality, and therefore on fisheries, is another major cause for concern within the catchment, particularly in the smaller streams which are so important as nursery areas for migratory fish. Pollution prevention work must realise some real improvements by ensuring that farmers construct appropriate waste disposal systems and implement effective waste management regimes in order that the full potential of the catchment can be realised.
