The National Rivers Authority is undertaking a programme of Catchment Management Plans. These allow the NRA to balance competing requirements and interests of users of the water environment. The process realises the environmental potential of a catchment in terms of water quality, water quantity and physical features. The first stage is the production of a Consultation Report. This outlines the issues within the catchment and options for their solution. Following the period of consultation, an Action Plan is produced. This includes an Activity Plan for improvements to the water environment. It outlines areas of work and investment proposed by the NRA and others. An important part of the Catchment Management Plan process is to monitor the performance of the Activity Plan to ensure that targets and actions are achieved and that the plan still addresses all significant issues in the catchment in an appropriate manner. This Annual Review summarises the progress made since the publication of the Action Plan in December 1993. It is recommended that this Review is read in conjunction with that plan.
