Author: National Rivers Authority Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
This document presents a summary of a consultation on the River Itchen catchment management plan. The River Itchen rises on the Hampshire Downs as three spring fed tributaries; the Candover Stream, the River Aire and the Cheriton Stream, which join to form the River Itchen just west of New Alresford. From here the river flows westwards to Winchester where it turns south, flowing through the outskirts of Eastleigh and Southampton to the tidal limit at Woodmill. The population of the catchment is approximately 250,000, concentrated in Southampton, Eastleigh and Winchester. North of Eastleigh the catchment is predominantly rural, with water cress and fish farming important industries in the upper valley.
