Title: River Piddle low flows : remedial action
Author: Environment Agency South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
This booklet aims to analyse the remedial action of River Piddle low flows. The River Piddle was identified in 1989 by the National Rivers Authority (now the Environment Agency) as a low flow river which required priority action to resolve the conflict between abstractions of water and sustainable river flows. This resulted in the development of an action plan in 1991, which outlined a series of investigations and short term actions to improve the River Piddle, pending the full conclusion of these investigations. Progress to October 1994 was reported in the leaflet 'River Piddle low flows - Action Plan Progress'. We now summarise progress since that date and outline the solutions and the timescale for remedies that have been agreed with Wessex Water.
