Author: K.M. Lee
Document Type: Monograph
The water quality monitoring programme described in this technical note was established by the National Rivers Authority (South Western) in February 1991 to fulfil the legal requirements under the EC Surface Water Abstraction Directives 75/440/EEC and 79/869/EEC, and the UK Surface Waters (Classification) Regulations 1989, Statutory Instrument 1989/1148. The programme is carried out, also, to fulfil the current initial monitoring requirements under the EC Nitrate Directive. The 1994 monitoring programme is a continuation of the 1993 programme. Fifty four abstraction intakes operated by South West Water Services Limited, and two operated by Wessex Water Services Limited, for public drinking water supply in the Devon and Cornwall Areas are monitored in 1994. The 1994 programme complies with the requirements of the two Directives concerning the determinands monitored, methods of measurement and frequencies of sampling and analysis. All abstraction intakes are sampled routinely and evenly over a year. The data generated from this programme can be used to provide additional information to support the routine river chemical programme.
