This report investigates the environmental impact of Coombe Farm on the Clapton Stream. The Clapton Stream has a River Quality Objective (RQO) of NWC Class 1B. Coombe Farm consists of a large Dairy Products unit and a Pig unit. Organic waste from the Dairy unit is treated on site and the effluent together with Pig waste is pumped to fields in the headwaters of the Hewish Stream and spray irrigated to land. No waste is discharged direct to the Clapton Stream although a consented discharge to the Clapton Stream is held by Coombe Farm.
