The purpose of the strategic context is to:
- provide a brief description of the river basin catchment, including the main rivers, geology and population
- provide an overview of the drainage and wastewater systems in the catchment
- summarise the current performance of sewerage systems but looking at historical events over the last three years, for example blockages, collapses and flooding.
We have prepared a draft of the strategic context so we can share the text with partner organisations and seek feedback and input from their knowledge of these river basin catchments. The final version of the strategic context will be the first chapter within the DWMP.
