The Great Ouse, in this catchment, is fed by four main tributaries. \nÔÇó\tThe River Cam, which receives water from the River Granta, the South Level Lodes, the River Rhee and Bourn Brook. \nÔÇó\tThe River Lark \nÔÇó\tThe Little Ouse and its tributaries which include the Thet and the Sapiston/Black Bourn \nÔÇó\tThe River Wissey \n\nThe area is characterised by the East Anglian Chalklands in the south, Brecklands in the north and the South Level fenland to the west of the area. The catchment is predominantly rural and includes high-grade agricultural land. The main urban areas within the Cam and Ely Ouse are Cambridge, Royston, Saffron Walden, Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds, Ely and Swaffham. The area is rapidly developing. The catchment also supports a number of nationally and internationally important water-related sites that are of exceptional value.\n\nThere are some issues with the numbers of water bodies shown in the reasons for not achieving good status chart. The reason for this is that we are still in Cycle 1 of WFD, we are currently working on a new water body network for Cycle 2. This new network has been used to create the consultation documents, however we are still reviewing these relationships and expect these to change between now and the final updated river basin management plan for Cycle 2.","photoAltText":"Roswell former gravel pits looking towards Ely Cathedral, Cambridgeshire","color":"#c71585","data-url":"http://environment.data.gov.uk/catchment-planning/so/ManagementCatchment/3009","web-url":"ManagementCatchment/3009","label":"Cam and Ely Ouse","type":"Management Catchment","subType":"SurfaceWater","gml":"gml/managementcatchment/3009.gml","id":"3009","legend":[{"type":"surface water operational catchment","color":"#00bfff","display":"area"},{"type":"surface water management catchment","color":"#c71585"}]}
