Title: Regional hydrometric report and catalogue 1989
Author: National Rivers Authority Severn-Trent Region
Document Type: Monograph
The National Rivers Authority assumed responsibility for hydrometric data on vesting day 1 September 1989.The data presented in his Yearbook was managed by the Rivers and Regulation Division of Severn Trent Water Authority until vesting day and by the NRA's Severn-Trent Region thereafter. Publication of the 1989 Yearbook has been timed to coincide with a sister volume on the 1989 drought.As with previous Yearbooks,it is impossible to summarise all data.On this occasion,the opportunity has been taken to place more emphasis on the measurement of low river flows. Accordingly,no apology is made for the inclusion of all the results of current meter gaugings during summer 1989. (This was the longest^sustained period of low river flows since 1976) Elsewhere in the Yearbook,an indication is given in the Data Section of the type of data routinely prepared for established measurement stations.The full lists of stations are to be found in the second half of the volume under the Catalogue Section. The Yearbook and Catalogue provide a summary of available processed hydrometric data for 1989 together with selected details of low flow measurements. The sister volume specifically deals with the drought,its severity,its consequences and the lessons learned within the NRA Severn-Trent Region.Together,the two volumes provide a full picture of the way in which the drought was monitored and the water resources were managed in 1989.
