Title: Lower Witham catchment management plan : summary report : June 1995
Author: National Rivers Authority Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
River catchments are subject to increasing use by a wide variety of activities, many of which interact, some giving rise to conflicts. The many competing demands on the water environment and the interests of users and beneficiaries must be balanced. Catchment management involves the NRA working with many people and organisations and using its authority to ensure rivers, lakes, coastal and underground waters are protected, and where possible improved, for the benefit of present and future users. The Lower Witham Catchment covers a large part of South Lincolnshire and is characterised by large areas of flat fenland, much of which is close to or below sea level. Without artificial coastal and river defences much of the area would be marshland inundated by the sea.
