Title: Usk catchment management plan : action plan 1996
Author: National Rivers Authority Welsh Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Usk catchment is one of extraordinary contrasts: the mountainous landscape of the Brecon Beacons and the lowland plains and estuarine area around Newport; the rural character of much of the River Usk valley and the highly populated and industrialised Afon Lwyd valley; the man-made channel of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal and the fast flowing headwaters of the River Usk as well as the daily changes experienced by an estuary with the second highest tidal range in the world. The Action Plan is a strategic policy framework for the management of the catchment and is produced after we have considered the comments received on the Consultation Plan. It includes an action plan to achieve the vision for the Usk Catchment and will form the basis for improvements to the water environment.
