This catchment abstration licensing strategy (CAMS) sets out how water resources are managed in the Severn Corridor catchment. It provides information about where water is available for further abstraction, and an indication of how reliable a new abstraction licence may be.

The strategy aims to protect and enhance the water environment whilst still allowing economic and social development through sustainable water use. It supersedes the Severn Corridor CAMS strategy issued in June 2003.
