Title: Kennet and Coln river levels study. Volume one - River Kennet : final report
Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
This document is Volume One of a two volume Final Report on the Kennet and Coln River Levels Study and considers the Upper Kennet catchment above Knighton gauging station. The Study was commissioned largely as a result of public concern that the character of the river had changed over the last 30 years. The fundamental concern was with reduced river levels and the general view was that reductions were caused, in great part, by groundwater abstraction for public supply outside the Kennet catchment. The Study was divided into two stages and an Interim Report on the Stage One Study was issued in December 1991. This Report updates the findings of the Stage One Study and presents the findings for both Stage One and Stage Two.
