Title: Freshwater Tamar and tributaries plan from July 1999 to July 2004
Author: Environment Agency South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
This Local Action Plana is based on the river system of the freshwater Tamar and its ributaries draining from the Culm measures and the slopes of Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor to the tidal limit at Gunnislake. The total area covers 465 square kilometres. The River Wolf catchment includes Roadford Reservoir, which supplies water to a large part of Devon and Cornwall. Rivers with dams have a modified flow regime. At times of low flows releases for abstraction downstream enhance water levels. This Action Plan follows the production of the Freshwater Tamar Consultation Draft and the ending of the consultation period. The Action Plan will form the basis for improvements to the environment and primarily covers the period from July 1999 to April 2003. Achievements of the Action Plan will be monitored and reported annually. Future annual reviews will include new issues as they arise.
