Author: Environment Agency South Wessex Area
Document Type: Monograph
This is the First Annual Review of the Frome and Piddle Action Plan which was published in February 1996. It introduces the Environment Agency, summarises progress made with Actions and introduces several new Actions. The Frome and Piddle is a rural catchment of high amenity and ecological value. The upper part of the catchment lies within the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is characterised by steep-sided valleys. The rivers change in character as they flow through lowland towards Poole Harbour where they drain into the English Channel. These rivers make an important contribution to the rural economy through tourism, agriculture and recreation. The high quality water in the aquifer provides a source both for public water supply and for the rivers which support high quality salmonid fisheries.
