EA Catchment Abstraction Management Strategy (CAMS) Boundaries

EA Catchment Abstraction Management Strategy (CAMS) Boundaries are reference boundaries defining areas where technical assesment on future water availability and demand has been undertaken. The technical assessemtn helps identify where water may be available for future use but also where water resource demands may be impacting the water balacence. The CAMS boundaries should be used on a national (England and Wales) scale to show the geographical distribution of CAMS and are not suitable for detailed technical assessments. The boundaries may be subject to change based on the Environment Agency's technical and catchment understanding. The data was created in 2009.
