The Water Act 1989 has resulted in the reorganisation of the system of River Basin Management which has operated in England and Wales since the establishment of the 10 Water Authorities in 1974. On 1st September 1989 the Water Authorities were re-structured to produce 10 Water Service Companies and a new regulatory body, the National Rivers Authority. This presentation will summarise the changes to River Basin Management in England and Wales resulting from this reorganisation.
