    Many rivers in the catchment suffer from low flows, and a number of abstractions are proven to be impacting the rivers Beane, Mimram and Upper Lee. Local action and a positive partnership with Affinity Water the main supply company in the area, has resulted in ambitious plans and commitments to reducing abstraction on the most impacted rivers. Improving water quality to safeguard both public supply and water in the environment, is an important focus in the catchment. Local people are increasingly engaging with public and private landowners in the area, building the foundations for sustained improvements over the years ahead.
