    The Lower River Wear and Estuary operational catchment flows from Crook in the south, becoming tidal shortly after passing through Chester-Le-Street, and eventually meets the North Sea. The area is a mix of urban, industrial and arable land and the largest conurbations include Durham, Washington and Sunderland.
