Title: The River Ogmore action plan support document
Author: National Rivers Authority Welsh Region
Document Type: Monograph
This document presents the range of uses identified in the Ogmore catchment, the targets required to protect them in terms of water quality, water quantity and physical features, and the areas which fail to live up to these targets. The assessment is based on a detailed study carried out by the NRA during 1991, with a further review in 1994/95, following the launch of the original Draft Ogmore CMP in 1992. The information provided in this document supports the Ogmore Action Plan, published in January 1996. The Action Plan will steer us in developing our own management programme for the catchment and guiding us in the way we respond to any development proposals, as we go forward into the Environment Agency in April 1996. This support document is divided into 3 sections: Uses presents the identified Uses to which the Ogmore water environment is put (including those to be incorporated in the new Statutory Water Quality Objective (SWQO) scheme); Targets identifies the statutory and informal targets required to support the identified Uses. The targets are expressed in terms of water quality, water quantity and physical features; State of the identifies those areas/locations which fail to meet the targets set to protect Catchment them, thus identifying issues requiring resolution. Areas of conflict between legitimate Uses are also identified and raised as issues.
