This brief Environment Agency leaflet describes Agency's strategies for managing water resources in the South West Region. The Region comprises the whole of the south-west peninsula, together with the area from the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire, across Salisbury Plain to the South Coast at Christchurch in Hampshire. Landscape features include the gorges of the Mendip Hills, the chalk downlands of Wiltshire and Dorset, the moorlands of Cornwall and Devon and the ancient woodlands and wetlands of the Tamar valley. The total area of the region is over 20,000 km2. Many of our larger towns and cities lie along the coast. 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.
