Title: South Essex catchment management plan : consultation report
Author: National Rivers Authority Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
Annotation: EA additional title info: November 1995
This report examines the Rivers Crouch, Roach, Mardyke, their tributaries, their catchments, their offshore tidal waters, and adjacent coastal and Thames estuary frontages. The shoreline limits are Purfleet in the Thames Estuary and the Dengie Peninsula. This catchment contains the Rivers Crouch, Roach and Mardyke, the drainage network within Canvey Island, and the numerous smaller rivers, many of which drain directly to the sea or the Thames Estuary. The land use is primarily agricultural, but substantial urban and industrial areas form much of the coastal fringe between Southend-on-Sea and Purflect. Significant industry is associated with the major towns of Basildon and Wickford, with large populations at Billericay and Burnham-on-Crouch.
