Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
This leaflet summarises the status and uses of the River Kennet catchment and outlines cross-functional plans to address the issues highlighted during the consultation stage. The following is the shared Vision of those with an interest in the catchment: The River Kennet is a river of good water quality supporting excellent fisheries and a public water supply from Fobney in the lower catchment. The still waters o f the lower Kennet valley are a valuable recreational and ecological resource which, combined with the Kennet and Avon Canal, provide angling, bird watching, walking, nature conservation and picnic facilities. In the upper reaches of the catchment, groundwater is abstracted and provides a source of supply for, amongst others, Swindon, Marlborough and Ogboume St. George. The management of flood risk was a key objective and NRA activities in the catchment should had reduced the risk of flooding in urban and semi-urban areas.
