The Freshwater and Tidal Waters Investigation Teams carry out non-routine water quality monitoring. Work programmes are targetted at determining the cause of non-compliance with quality standards and assessing the extent of impact of certain discharges on receiving waters. A total of 5,890 water samples and 990 biological samples are estimated to be collected in. 1992. Since is not possible to estimate the number of determinands to be analysed, the Laboratory Controller has agreed a laboratory workload quota of equivalent to 5.5 analysts (FTE). The work programme began in 1992. Full details are given in the report.
