Title: River Wylye low flow study : progress and further investigations
Author: Environment Agency South West Region South Wessex Area
Document Type: Monograph
This booklet is a River Wylye low flow study. In 1991 the National Rivers Authority studied in two phases the influence of abstractions for public water supply on low flows in the Upper Hampshire Avon. In Phase 1, Halcrow estimated the effect of abstraction on all five tributary areas which make up the Upper Hampshire Avon, including the River Wylye. This was completed in 1993. Of the five sub-catchments the Wylye is the most affected by abstractions. Beginning in 1993, Phase 2 focused on low flows in the Wylye and was completed earlier this year. This leaflet summarises the results, the actions taken and outlines the further work necessary to more fully resolve appropriate action in the Wylye catchment.
