Soar abstraction licensing strategy

How the Environment Agency plans to manage water in the Soar catchment.



This catchment abstraction management strategy (CAMS) sets out how we will manage water resources in the Soar catchment, provides information on how existing abstraction is regulated and if water is available for further abstraction.

The plan will also detail how it protects our requirements under the Water Framework Directive, ensuring no ecological deterioration to our rivers.
