Author: Environment Agency South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
This Catchment Management Plan introduces the Environment Agency, summarises progress made with actions and looks at seven new actions. This report summarises the progress made since the publication of the Hampshire Avon CMP First Annual Review in October 1995. The Avon rises in the Vale of Pewsey and, with its tributaries the Bourne and Wylye, drains the chalk of Salisbury Plain. The Nadder, which is joined by the Wylye near Salisbury, drains the escarpment of the South Wiltshire Downs and the Kimmeridge clays of the Wardour Vale. The Ebble and the Ashford Water also drain the South Wiltshire Downs and join the Avon downstream of Salisbury and Fordingbridge respectively. Below Fordingbridge, a number of streams drain the tertiary deposits of the New Forest. The Avon itself drains intp Christchurch Harbour, where it is joined by the Stour and Mude before discharging into the English Channel.
