Document Type: Monograph
During Spring 1993 the lower reaches of four subcatchments of the River Torridge together with the upper, mid and lower reaches of the main river were sampled on three occasions. Comparisons of the levels of Cryptosporidium oocysts observed were made with water quality analyses made at the same time and data from automatic recording stations. No correlations between oocysts and other parameters were established although there was a possible relationship between presence of oocysts and recent animal pollution or storm events. This study will continue after discussions between the participants has taken place to determine the future programme.
