At the second and third North Sea Conferences in 1987 and 1990, the UK Government made a commitment to reduce the loads (load = concentration x flow) of certain substances, known as Annex 1A substances, entering tidal waters from rivers and direct discharges. Annex 1A substances are those which are toxic, persistent and/or bioaccumulative. Since 1991 loadings of Annex 1A substances have been detected in the River Tamar at the harmonised monitoring site at Gunnislake Bridge. The objective of this report is to identify sources of Annex 1A substances in the Tamar catchment that are contributing to the significant loadings at Gunnislake Bridge.
