Author: National Rivers Authority Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
River catchments are subject to increasing use by a wide variety of activities, many of which interact, some giving rise to conflicts. The many competing demands on the water environment and the interests of users and beneficiaries must be balanced. The NRAs mechanism for doing this is known as Catchment Management Planning. This involves the NRA working with other organisations and individuals and using its authority to ensure rivers, lakes, coastal and underground waters are protected, and where possible, improved, for the benefit of present and future users. The CMP allows the NRAs functions and responsibilities to be applied in a coordinated manner within a particular catchment.The full Consultation Report gives a detailed account of how the water environment is used (eg, abstraction for public water supply, angling, agriculture,etc) and the state of the catchment to achieve these uses, for example, the quality of the water in its rivers.
