Title: River Colne fact file
Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
Historically many of the spring sources feeding the Colne catchment have been intercepted or diminished by groundwater abstraction. Generally speaking, water can only be abstracted under licence. The licence states how much water can be taken and how often. Our water resources staff are responsible for licensing abstractions, 4 licences have been granted, and combined total of 750 mega litres per year can be abstracted under licence from the Colne.
