This catchment abstraction management strategy (CAMS) 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 Teme CAMS strategy issued in September 2005.
