  • Bechan Brook – Tregynon, Powys

We are seeking your views as to whether you agree with the proposed changes, further detail can be found below as a document download.

Under the Water Act 2014, Natural Resources Wales has responsibility for maintaining and updating the main river map for Wales. A main river is defined as that included on the main river map which can be viewed here: Flood risk maps. If a watercourse is designated as a main river, it will give Natural Resources Wales the ability to exercise powers directly on it.
