Welcome to the River Thames User Groups

Eight River User Groups cover the navigational waters of the non tidal Thames from Lechlade all the way down river to Teddington.

They were set up by the Thames Conservancy some 33 years ago and are now sponsored by the Environment Agency to provide a forum to discuss and resolve issues affecting river activities.

Each ‘RUG’ Chair sits on the Thames Navigation User Forum used to gain customer feedback on EA projects and future plans and to receive advice and guidance on topics such as boat registration charges and the customer charter.

Their main purpose is to act as a conduit for information on the operational management of the Thames Navigation by the EA, to maintain a calendar of events to assist event organisers to de-conflict events which otherwise might clash and to resolve any conflicts misunderstandings or difficulties experienced by the many clubs and organisations which use the river.
