ADAS-Defra_Drainage_in_DTCs.pdf - Accepted Version
Application of historical field drainage statistics to assess the extent of drainage within the DEFRA Demonstration Test Catchments (DTCs) and to put them into a broader national and regional context. The parish drainage data for 1971-80 indicate that the DTCs do not encompass any of the known drainage ‘hotspots’, although the Wensum has a drainage profile that almost matches the national average. The Avon had little drainage due to its high permeability chalk geology and the Eden has a mostly grassland economy.
