Author: National Rivers Authority Welsh Region
Document Type: Monograph
For the purposes of this Action Plan, the "catchment" refers to the catchment area of the rivers Afan and Kenfig, two distinct hydrological catchments, unless specifically stated otherwise. The Ffrwd Wyllt, once a trib u tary of the Afan until the creation of Port Talbot docks, now discharges to the mouth of the Afan Estuary via the docks. This Catchment Management Plan provided a significant progress in: improving water quality; developing the migratory fishery; protecting river corridors and floodplains; maintaining flood protection for urban areas; and balancing abstraction with the needs of the environment.
