Annotation: EA additional title info: October 1993
Established in 1989 the National Rivers Authority has as it's role the "Guardians of the Water Environment. As such it is committed to protecting and improving the water environment in its broadest sense. Establishing a sound planning base for the development of river catchments is essential to our future management Catchment Management Plans are a vehicle to achieve improvements in the water environment. By using public consultation they will allow input from others and provide commitment from all parties to achieving action on important issues. Key issues in this plan are considered to be: The catchment has a deficiency of resources to meet demands which can currently be expected to occur on average one year in five. This frequency is expected to increase as abstraction for public water supply increases; The tidal River Nene is grossly polluted for most of its length. Effluent improvement plans are identified as the recommended option. This is the fifth such Plan produced in the Anglian Region.
