Author: T. Cronin
Document Type: Monograph
Annotation: EA additional title info: Devon area internal report
The River Lemon rises at the foot of Haytor Quarry and flows in a westerly direction through the town of Newton Abbot, before joining the River Teign at the head of the estuary. Some sections of the river running through the town have been culverted, and for the purpose of this investigation these sections were deemed to be unsafe under the constraints of the Health and Safety policy, and therefore no investigations were carried out on these sections. The area under investigation starts at a point where the River Lemon reaches Newton Abbot and ends at the confluence of the Lemon and River Teign. It was sub divided into three sections. Sections one and three were walked on several occasions during the summer in an attempt to identify the numerous discharges, and to ascertain their effect on the water quality.
