Last month the Government gave the go-ahead for British Waterways to form a new 'national trust' for the canals and rivers in England & Wales in April 2012.
The water levels in the seven reservoirs which feed the canal would normally be expected to be around 80% of their capacity at this time of year, according to British Waterways, which manages 2,200 miles of canals and rivers across the country.
The company said that British Waterways, a national organisation that manages the canals and inland waterways of the UK, has 15 main offices across the UK plus a large number of remote sites along the canal network.
Jane Thomson, regeneration manager for British Waterways said: "British Waterways is thrilled that funding for the Tees White Water Course upgrade has been secured.
The BAP is a "living document" that is available for all in British Waterways to view.
Stephen Ainger, chief executive of Partnerships for Renewables, which helps develop renewable energy projects in the public sector, said the announcement marked the beginning of a trend, adding: "It is great to see that British Waterways has demonstrated the vision to become a torch bearer for others to follow.
The meeting included experts from British Waterways, Natural England, Countryside Council for Wales, the Environment Agency, the University of Liverpool and Chester Zoo, who have agreed a series of actions to promote the protection of two rare freshwater submerged plants, Grasswrack Pondweed and Floating Water Plantain.

A spokesman for British Waterways said: "The new application will reduce the channel's width from 10m to 6.
But British Waterways say there is no question of selling off buildings and land to ease the cash crisis.
Janet Lewis-Jones, the British Waterways board member with special responsibility for Wales, said: ``Robin's specific skills and experience, particularly his knowledge of building partnerships to unlock value from public assets, are highly relevant to the work we are doing with our partners in Wales.
