Author: G.H. Bielby
Document Type: Monograph
Abstract:
This report has been prepared by Mr Gordon Bielby, Regional General Manager of the future South West Unit of the National Rivers Authority, with the assistance of specialist staff and external consultants. It describes the investigations which have been carried out into the impact of discharges of contaminated water on the plants and animals of the River Camel and other streams, following an incident at Lowermoor Water Treatment Works on 6/7 July, It is concluded that the only identifiable impact is on fish stocks with an estimated loss of between 43,000 and 61,000 juvenile salmonids. A consequence of this mortality will be a reduction of several hundred adult salmon and sea trout returning during the next three years.
