In response to a request from Mary Youell (Water Quality Officer, Cornwall Area) a water quality investigation was undertaken to assess the compliance of the Trelavour Kilns discharge CP/7 with its consent conditions and to identify any adverse effects the effluent may be having upon the St Dennis Stream. The trade effluent is derived from process waste water arising from the refining and dewatering of china clay. A water quality survey of the St Dennis Stream and the trade effluent was carried out on the 19th of November 1996. A repeat survey was also carried out on the 2nd of December, when the Trelavour kilns were not discharging effluent due to the desludging of the settlement lagoons. The water quality parameters recorded during both surveys enabled a comparison between the quality of the St. Dennis Stream when the kilns were discharging and when they were not.
