Although by the early 1960's there was in existence a large body of legislation dealing with water matters, the Water Resources Act 1963 provided for the first time a significent framework for the conservation, redistribution, and augmentation of water resources to secure their proper use in England and Wales. This Act largely grew from the activities of the Central Advisory Water Committee. This paper discusses the Act and its application, including background reports, regional water authorities, and related subjects.
