Our Catchment

Our catchment encompasses Cambridge, Ely, Bury St Edmunds, and Thetford. The catchment is split into five sub-catchments: Cam, Lark, Little Ouse & Thet, South Level, and Wissey. Within these five sub-catchments there are 73 waterbodies, only seven of which are currently achieving Good water quality.
