Title: The water protection zone (River Dee catchment) designation order : supplementary paper in support of the application
Author: National Rivers Authority Welsh Region
Document Type: Monograph
This paper contains explanatory material and other relevant information in support of the application for the proposed Order and should be seen as illustrative rather than definitive of the NRAs case for the Order. It has been designed to accompany the draft Order which is being submitted to the Secretary of State for the Environment and the Secretary of State for Wales. The draft Order is also available for public inspection. The River Dee runs from sources in Snowdonia through Corwen, Llangollen and Chester to the Dee Estuary which separates Wales from the Wirral. Upstream of Chester Weir, the river is a major source of drinking water. It is this part of the river and its catchment area shown on the map accompanying the application for the Order which it is proposed should become a water protection zone.
