Millendreath Beach was found to fail EC Bathing Water Directive mandatory standards in 1989. In addition single samples exceeded the standards in 1988 and 1994 but did not cause an overall failure. It was considered that the present discharge from Millendreath Holiday Village STW was causing a risk of failure and during discussions with the site owners, Millendreath Holiday Village, the Millendreath Stream upstream of the STW was also identified as a possible source of contamination. The objective of this report is to assess the extent, and identify possible sources, of bacterial contamination of the Millendreath Stream and it's tributaries.
