Title: An assessment of water quality an Nansmellyn Marsh
Author: J. Brewer

An investigation was carried out on 26 August 1992 at Nansmellyn Marsh following concern by the NRA South West over a proposal from Cornwall Trust for Nature Conservation (CTOC) to manage the marsh and create open pools of water thereby changing the structure of the marsh. The proposed change in marsh structure could affect the functional ability of the marsh to remove metals from the Budnic adit (identified in Figure 1) which discharges from the Budnic Consuls lead and tin mine. Ultimately, this could affect water quality in the Bolingey Stream. Therefore, the purpose of the investigation was to ascertain whether Nansmellyn Marsh does, in fact, protect the Bolingey Stream from potential metal pollution.
