This brief Environment Agency leaflet describes Agency's strategies for managing water resources in the West Midlands Region. This leaflet summarises the strategy for West Midlands. The West Midlands extends over about half of the Agency's Midlands Region, and roughly a tenth of the Environment Agency Wales water management area. Principal rivers in the West Midlands are the Rivers Wye, Severn, Avon, Stour, Tern, Teme, Trent, Sow, Dove, Tame, and their sub-catchments. The West Midlands landscape ranges from the rolling hills of Herefordshire and the Malverns, to the intensively farmed agricultural plains of the Shropshire Plain and Vale of Evesham, to the urban expanse of the Birmingham conurbation. The Agency's strategy reflects these issues. It looks 25 years ahead, and considers the many changes that may occur over this time. Its vision is: Enough water for all human uses with an Improved water environment.
