Title: Millendreath nearshore survey (summer 1995) : data report
Author: Eric Darbyshire
Document Type: Monograph
A survey was undertaken to investigate the tidal flow regime and the dispersion characteristics of the near shore waters off Millendreath in South Cornwall on 31 July 1995. The objective of the survey was to provide information to assist in establishing a location for the discharge of treated sewage effluent such that the discharge does not impact adversely on the bathing area of Millendreath Beach. The work was undertaken by Cornwall Area Investigations Team with assistance from Tidal Waters Quality. This report presents the data collected during the survey. Some processing has been carried out in order to aid interpretation but at this stage no recommendations have been made regarding a discharge location.
