The River Wear, its tributaries and the Durham coastal streams are highly valued by the communities which live within the catchment. The catchment is home to over 400,000 people who arc dependent on the water environment for both industrial and domestic water supplies and the disposal of sewage and industrial effluents. The National Rivers Authority (NRA) through internal discussion and informal liaison with a range of outside bodies, produced the River Wear Catchment Management Plan - Consultation Report. This Report described the catchment, the uses of the catchment and activities within it, reviewed the state of the catchment against targets and identified issues which need to be addressed. Proposals for actions to address these issues were made.
