Author: Environment Agency Midlands Region
Document Type: Monograph
This Annual Review summarises the progress made in achieving targets to improve the water environment in the Teme Catchment in the year since publication of the Second Annual Review in May 1998. Responsible parties, in carrying out the actions planned for this year including a number of collaborative actions, have made good progress. Of the 54 actions planned for the year 1998/99 (including ongoing actions) 25 have been completed, bringing to 50 the total number of actions completed since publication of the Action Plan. Progress has been made on all the remainder except for four. Of particular note this year has been the restoration of Powick Weir. The new weir incorporates passage facilities for the free passage of salmon, shad, coarse fish and eels. The Conservation Strategies and operational protocols for the River Teme Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) have been agreed and are in operation. The stream interception and diversion work at the tyre landfill site at Heyope in Knighton has been successfully completed and discussions are taking place on the next steps to remediate the site. Following the petrol lost from a tank during 1998, a remediation scheme has been commissioned and installed at Castle Garage, Ludlow.
