This project was commissioned in response to public concerns that the character of the river had changed over the last 30 years and, in particular, that river levels had reduced. 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; Surface flows and river levels; Water quality Flora and fauna. Each parameter was considered with regard to historical evidence, local information and perceptions, and factual data analyses. Stage Two considered each of the possible causes of catchment change as below: Meteorological variation; Groundwater abstraction; Effluent discharges and pollutant inputs; River management and Land management.
