Title: Upper Kennet river levels study
Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
This project was commissioned in response to public concerns that the condition of the upper reaches of the River Rennet has declined and, in particular, that river levels have reduced, over recent years. The study was divided into two stages. Stage One considered the evidence for change in catchment characteristics with regard to the following parameters: Groundwater levels; Water Quality; Surface flows and water levels; Flora and Fauna. Each parameter was considered with regard to historical evidence, local information and perceptions and factual data analyses and Stage Two considered each of the possible causes of catchment change as below: Meteorological variation; River Management; Groundwater abstraction; Land Management; Effluent discharges and pollutant inputs.
