Catchment maps

What is planned for this page is an interactive map through which you will be able to find details of projects, activities, organisations etc. along our river Aire. That’s all a bit techy, so while we figure out how to do it, here is a static map showing the catchment and how it is divided into the Environment Agency’s Operational Catchments and then Water Bodies.

If you can’t wait, then much more detail is available from the EA’s Catchment Data Explorer.
