Title: River Lynher : catchment action plan
Author: National Rivers Authority South West
Document Type: Monograph
The River Lynher drains a catchment area to the west of Plymouth and the Tamar and shares a joint estuary. Its major tributary is the River Tiddy which has exhibited poor water quality due to metal contamination. The main river supports a moderate fish population in need of further support. The aims of the plan are to re-establish fish stocks to pre-1970 levels, achieve water quality objectives and enforce pollution and water resources legislation. Functional officers have identified the main challenges to the achievement of environmental objective. Where solutions are clear they have been programmed. In other cases investigations are needed to determine the way forward.
