Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
This report examines the experiences of the drought from June 1995 to March 1996. Its assessment is from the stance of the National Rivers Authority, rather than the Environment Agency. This period of prolonged dry weather is unprecedented in North West Region's records. Despite this minimum historic event, and record demands for water, essential Public Water Supplies were maintained, without interruption, and without the aquatic environment suffering as a consequence. Such are the critical success factors. The recommendations are many and various. Too many to record here.They are listed at the end of the report while their rationale is given within the report narrative.
