The purpose of this document is to report on the water quality simulations of the Haddeo-Exe river system in which the operation of the Wimbleball Pump Storage Scheme, proposed by SWWSL, is modelled. The purpose of these simulations is to assess the environmental impact of the Scheme on the Haddeo-Exe river system. The Water Quality function has to assess their response to the determination of abstraction licence applications on the basis that the proposed water resources development does not cause deterioration in water quality (if at all) of more than 10% This effect is defined using key appropriate determinands for the affected inland water or ground water. Large developments affecting almost the whole of a major river system are assessed using a water quality simulation model - QUASAR.
