Abstract

Alteration of natural flow regimes caused by anthropogenic activities are affecting freshwater environments around the world (Malmqvist and Rundle 2002). In the UK, natural flow regimes are influenced by amongst others, land use change, water abstraction and transfer, hydroelectric power generation and flow impoundments. Water abstraction and transfers are a particular issue exacerbating low flows and exaggerating the effect of drought. These issues are created by management decisions and can therefore be altered.
