Title: Water resources development options : final report. Vol.1 : main report
Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
Howard Humphreys and Partners, in association with Cobham Resource Consultants, were commissioned by the National Rivers Authority, Thames Region, to identify and assess feasible water resource development options to meet the projected demands for water in the Thames region to the year 2021. The Thames region is the most heavily populated and intensively developed catchment management region of Britain. It covers an area of 13,000 square kilometres and has a population of 11.4 million. The distribution of resources and demand within the region is uneven, with demand exceeding available resources in London. Peak demands during the summer months increase the demand, with the deficit increasing in London and the small surplus elsewhere being eliminated.
