Title: The water quality of the Humber Estuary 1992 : a report from The Humber Estuary Committee
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
The Humber Committee of the Anglian, Severn-Trent and Northumbria and Yorkshire Regions of the National Rivers Authority co-ordinates the management and monitoring of the water quality of the Humber Estuary. Environmental Quality Objectives, designed to protect existing and potential uses of estuary waters, are defined in terms of chemical environmental quality standards set for the water column. Routine monitoring programmes, augmented by intensive special surveys, provide data on the chemical quality of the Humber and its tidal tributaries, freshwater rivers and industrial inputs, metal accumulation in sediments and organisms, and the nature and diversity of the invertebrate fauna of the estuary. The following report gives results from surveys carried out during 1992.
