Title: NRA response to using water wisely : a consultation paper published by the DoE/Welsh Office July 1992
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
The National Rivers Authority (NRA) strongly welcomes the DoE/Welsh Office initiative in publishing the consultation paper, and believes it to be a significant step in promoting the wise use of water. As guardians of the water environment, the N RA is intent upon ensuring the efficient use of water resources, and supports initiatives which further this objective. An appropriate balance needs to be struck between the reasonable needs for water to be removed from the water environment to meet the needs of water supply, industry and agriculture as against the demands for water to sustain and improve the ecological, water quality, recreational and navigational characteristics of our water resources. However, the more water taken from our water resources, the more likely it is that the impact upon our rivers and wetlands will be unacceptable.
