Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
Wetland vegetation and aquatic macroinvertebrates we re surveyed on the Abbey River and the Chertsey Bourne. The full length of the Abbey River (3.5km) was surveyed. The Chertsey Bourne was surveyed between the M3/M25 motorway interchange and its confluence with the River Thames (approximately 6.5km). Vegetation surveys were carried out between 10-14 November 1989. Macroinvertebrate surveys were carried out on 16 November 1989. The aims of this Section of the Aquatic Biology report were: (i) To provide baseline data on the wetland vegetation and aquatic macroinvertebrates of the Abbey River and Chertsey Bourne; (ii) To assess the nature conservation value of the Abbey River and Chertsey Bourne and identify areas which were likely to be sensitive to environmental impact.
