Title: National Rivers Authority, Welsh Region : drought report 1989
Author: National Rivers Authority Welsh Region
Document Type: Monograph
The dry spring of 1989 turned out to be the precursor of a dry summer, culminating in a severe drought over large areas of England and Wales; the latest in a series of droughts following 1975/76 and 1984. This report describes the drought as it occurred within the Welsh Region, and provides, where applicable, comparisons with 1976 and 1984. To attempt to compress all the data collected during the period into a meaningful report, although considered desirable from an historic perspective, would only have marginal benefits from a practicable viewpoint. This report is therefore the culmination of a data selection process, whereby only salient data has been used to illustrate the relative severity of 1989 compared with previous droughts of recent memory.
