Title: Rhymney catchment management plan : consultation report : January 1996
Author: National Rivers Authority Welsh Region
Document Type: Monograph
The River Rhymney is a typical South Wales valley river which is gradually recovering from its heritage of coal mining and heavy industry. The water quality is improving, the wildlife is returning to the catchment and the fisheries are being restored. Land reclamation schemes are gradually reshaping the landscape into a greener and more attractive environment. The road schemes planned are working towards an increasing economic prosperity. People already put the river and its valley to numerous uses including angling, walking, bird watching and cycling and these developments will hopefully encourage wider use of the valley. This consultation document presents a number of issues and options for the future management of the Rhymney catchment and is based on a detailed study that we carried out during 1995. A number of proposals are presented for comment and it is intended that, following consultation with you and other river users, an Action Plan will be presented which will seek to manage conflicts in river use and optimise the overall benefits to all river users within the catchment.
