    The Alt/Crossens catchment is an area of low-lying land between the Mersey and Ribble Estuaries. Approximately 30% of the catchment is made up of urban areas, including North Liverpool, Formby and Southport along the coast and Kirby, Maghull and Ormskirk inland. A large area of the catchment is high grade farmland which is crossed by a series of highly modified watercourses and drains. The water levels are controlled by 13 pumping stations and the catchments drain out into Liverpool Bay and the Ribble Estuary.
