Title: Blackwater River catchment management plan consultation draft : summary report : November 1992
Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
This brief National Rivers Authority leaflet describes the Catchment Management Plan Consultation phase of the Blackwater River. On its western side the Whitewater and Hart Rivers drain a largely undeveloped area, whilst on the eastern side the Blackwater River drains a heavily urbanised area comprising the towns of Aldershot, Famborough, Camberley, Sandhurst and Yateley. Surveys undertaken by the NRA highlight major variations in river water quality within the catchment. The River Whitewater is of a high quality and supports a natural population of brown trout. In contrast, the Blackwater River is in part of a poor quality although its downstream reaches are of fair quality.
