Title: Review of water resources in the Fylde Aquifer and Wyre catchment
Author: National Rivers Authority North West Region
Document Type: Monograph
In the development of the National Water Resources Strategy, redeployment of Vyrnwy water is one of the options examined. A desk study for North West Water Ltd. into feasible resources to replace this water suggested that about 80 Ml/d would be available by removing physical constraints on the operation of the Lancashire Conjunctive Use Scheme (LCUS) sources and realizing the total licensed quantities. This report considers the LCUS and its relation with the River Wyre catchment, where operational experience of the various abstractions, both surface and ground water, in the catchment have given numerous low flow problems. The report recommends an in-depth study of the LCUS groundwater resource and its relation with the surface water aspects in order to develop future management policies.
