This Catchment Abstraction Management Strategy sets out how water resources are managed in the Witham catchment. It provides information on how we will manage existing and new abstraction licences. It also provides information about where water is available for further abstraction and an indication of how reliable a new abstraction licence may be. It supercedes the strategy issued in 2004.
