The Freshwater and Tidal Waters Investigation Teams carry out non-routine water quality monitoring. Work programmes are targeted at determining the cause of non-compliance with quality standards and assessing the extent of impact of certain discharges on receiving waters. A total of 4,980 water samples and 1,420 biological samples are estimated to be collected in 1993. Since it is not possible to estimate the number of determinands to be analysed, the Laboratory Controller has agreed a laboratory workload quota of equivalent to 2.6 analysts (FTE). Full details of the work programme are given in the report.
