Title: Grimsby catchment management plan : consultation report : November 1994
Author: National Rivers Authority Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Grimsby Catchment includes a major regional aquifer, the Chalk, which is extensively developed for public water supply and industrial use and which supports springs and rivers of conservation and amenity importance. The coastal plain is significantly developed by industry and associated urban areas and it creates an important need for effective tidal defences. The protection of ground and surface water quality is particularly important in the catchment. The publication of this consultation report marks the start of a three month period of formal consultation. This will enable external organisations and the general public to work with the NRA in planning the future of the water environment in the Grimsby Catchment. The Grimsby Catchment adjoins the Humber Estuary Catchment, the Management Plan for which has recently been published for consultation. The NRA recognises that there are clear links between a number of issues in both catchments. To ensure effective public consultation, all issues relevant to the Grimsby Catchment are included in this plan.
