Title: River Darent low flow alleviation. Annex 3 : plan for the Darent : report of the joint NRA/TWUL project team
Author: National Rivers Authority Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
The River Darent is probably the most well known, and the worst affected, of all the rivers identified nationally by the NRA in 1990 as suffering from over abstraction. The Darent was one of six studied on behalf of Thames Water Authority by Halcrows, in the late 1980s. This report has been produced by the joint NRA and Thames Water Utilities Project Team for the River Darent. The Joint Team was tasked to prepare by 30th November 1992 a plan to return flow to the River Darent while safeguarding drinking water supplies to Thames Water’s customers. This report constitutes the plan, which provides for early progress to secure flows in the Darent, while allowing flexibility for and review of future arrangements, which will develop in the context of knowledge and information being acquired over the next 8 years.
