The Environment Agency have reviewed and updated their plans for dealing with
periods of drought and have recently published them in draft form on the internet.
Their drought plan set out how they will co-ordinate drought management activities
over England and Wales. It is supported by drought plans for the seven regions
and Wales; these cover how the EA manage a drought at a local level. These plans
link closely with the constituent area drought plans, which contain most of the
operational details, including the arrangements for monitoring.
You can access
all the drought plans on the EA website at:-
If you have any comments on any of the plans, please contact Brian Clark,
Environment Executive on 01784 223644 or email@example.com before
15th September 2006 so a response can be produced before the deadline of 22nd September.
Look out for a statement of response to the consultation which will be published on their website in January 2007.
