At its meeting in Lisbon in June 1988 the Paris Commission decided to implement a comprehensive annual study of inputs of selected pollutants to Convention waters. The study was first carried out during the calender year of 1990. It is the sixth annual study, for the 1995 calendar year, that is covered in this report. The parameters monitored on a mandatory basis are five metals (mercury, cadmium, copper, zinc and lead), four nutrients (nitrates, orthophosphates, total nitrogen and total phosphorus), one pesticide (gamma HCH) and two general parameters (suspended particulate matter and salinity). PCBs are monitored on a voluntary basis for seven congeners. All analyses are carried out on unfiltered samples except that for orthophosphate. This report describe results from the Parish commission 1995 survey for England and Wales.
