Title: Loughor and North Gower : consultation report : February 1996
Author: National Rivers Authority Welsh Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Loughor catchment drains the remote uplands of the Black Mountains before meandering through the rolling countryside of the middle and lower reaches to drain into the Loughor Estuary and Burry Inlet. The catchment contains areas of very high conservation and landscape value,-with important agricultural activities. There are also areas which have suffered from the adverse effects of industrial activity, particularly associated with the coal industry which has been active in the catchment for over 300 years. The pressures which are put on the catchment, particularly around the estuary, present specific problems which we address in this plan. This consultation document is divided into 2 parts: Part 1, presents the range of management issues, and options to address them, that have been identified by the NRA; and Part 2, provides background information on the approach we took in developing this plan, using information on identified river Uses (including those to be incorporated in the new Water Quality Objectives scheme) and the statutory and informal targets required to support them. The targets are expressed in terms of water quality, water quantity and physical features.
