Author: Environment Agency Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Humber Estuary Catchment Management Plan covers the area from the mouth of the Humber Estuary to the upstream points of salt penetration at Keadby Bridge on the River Trent and Boothferry Bridge on the River Ouse. -The Plan area has been extended for flood defence purposes on the River Ouse up 4o Aire's Mouth as this provides a natural flood defence boundary. This correlates with the area considered by HEMS. The location of the Estuary and the size of the outputs o f freshwater makes the Humber of great significance, relation to the environmental management o f the North Sea. The NRA published the Humber Estuary Catchment Management Plan as a Consultation Document in July 1994, and it's corresponding Action Plan in May 1995. The purpose o f this Review is to report on the extent to which actions, set out in the CMP Action Plan have been achieved, and to form a direct link between the Action Plan itself and HEMS. It does this by summarising the progress made over the past two years - for the issues identified - and relating them to the objectives set out in HEMS in the activity/progress statement at Section 7. We have also taken this opportunity to consider the wider responsibilities o f the Agency with respect to discharges to the atmosphere from "prescribed processes" and waste management, and these are discussed in Section 5 of this Review.
