Author: National Rivers Authority Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
The National Rivers Authority has a responsibility to monitor the quality, and the regulation of discharges into controlled waters. The extension of water-quality control into coastal waters, required by the EEC Directive of 1975, involves routine monitoring of existing sources of pollution, and the NRA has a responsibility to measure and control the effect of discharges and the capacity of the receiving waters to cope with them. This report contains an introduction, method, results, discussion and conclusion of an investigation into the bacteriological quality of bathing waters around the Kent Coast.
