Title: Wash zone report. Part 1 : the Wash NRA monitoring review
Author: National Rivers Authority Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
The Anglian Region of the National Rivers Authority (NRA) routinely monitor the four main tributary estuaries that drain into the Wash but, until recently, little information relating to water quality in the Wash embayment had been collected by the NRA or its predecessor organisition, Anglian Water. The aim of this report is to review existing information in order to highlight any water quality problems and to identify any gaps in current knowledge. The information can then be used to formulate a monitoring programme for the Wash which will take into account the needs of all designated users of the estuary. Water quality data from the tributary estuaries have been summarised using both existing NRA reports and previously unpublished data. NRA water quality data from the Wash embayment is reported here for the first time.
