Title: A litter assessment of two major tributaries of the Taff, the Cynon and the Rhondda : surveyed March - April 1990
Author: National Rivers Authority Welsh Region
Document Type: Monograph
One of the conclusions drawn from the Taff Litter investigation (Davies,1989) was that the major tributaries of the Taff (the Cynon and the Rhondda) import a significant quantity of litter into the main river and that this required further investigation. The assumption was made that if the tributaries have a major litter problem, similar to the Taff, then under high flows this would have a knock-on effect on the Taff. Consequently, a bankside litter assessment of the tributaries was carried out, using the same methodology as in the Taff Litter survey.
