Drought in Southern England

March 25, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

“So, barring miracles, the die is cast. Even on the biggest and most robust streams of all — rivers such as the Itchen and Test in Hampshire, the Kennet in Berkshire and the Avon in Wiltshire, famous waters that attract anglers from all over the world to fish them at up to £300 a day — the prospect is for steadily falling levels, silting gravels, a dearth of water plants, a further decline in aquatic flylife and dour fish.” Like parts of the northwestern and western U.S., southern and eastern England struggles to adjust with lower water levels this year.
