Author: Environment Agency Midlands Region
Document Type: Monograph
This River Severn first year of the Action Plan has seen good progress made towards protecting and improving the water quality, water resources and natural habitat in the catchment. Of the 74 actions planned for the 1995-1996 year, progress has been made on 72. Two outstanding actions (1.2, 8.2) have been deferred to a later date in the plan due to a change in work priority. Ten actions, not originally scheduled for this review year have been brought forward. Many of the actions have involved organisations working in collaboration with others. The catchment of the upper reaches of the River Severn is predominantly rural in character, and is an area known for its attractive upland landscape and great natural beauty. Most rivers in the catchment support’ high class fisheries and provide a diversity of habitats for a wide range of flora and fauna. The catchment is home to around 75,000 people, who depend on the water environment in many ways and value it for the amenities and enjoyment it provides for (heir local communities. The picturesque and unspoilt countryside within the catchment is also increasingly seen as a tourist attraction.
