Introduction to the Tame, Anker and Mease Catchment

The Tame Anker and Mease (TAM) catchment covers a large area of the midlands, heavy industry has had a large influence on the water bodies in the area, though this has declined over recent years.

The Opportunities:

  • Engage and work with local stakeholders and communities

  • Create a more sustainable and diverse water environment

  • Increase the natural capacity of rivers, streams, and wetlands to alleviate the impacts of flooding and pollution

  • Enhance the quality of the natural environment for the benefit of people’s health and wellbeing

The Challenges:

  • Agricultural diffuse pollution and sedimentation into watercourses

  • Densely populated catchment with a wide variety of communities to engage with

  • Physical modifications due to urbanisation, water storage, and flood protection

  • HS2 and its associated development

  • Invasive Non Native Species
