Abstract:
A pollution incident was reported to the Environment Agency on 19 August 1997 by Mr Allen Walter Pomeroy (of Greadon Farm). Slurry had entered the upper reaches of the River Torridge (NGR SS 2985 1834) via a small tributary from Greadon Farm itself. There has been some speculation as to the approximate time of the incident. As such, it was decided that Investigations Devon Area would conduct a Time of Travel study to determine approximately how long the slurry had taken from release to reach Fordmill Bridge, Ashmansworthy Bridge and the R. Torridge / Dipple Water confluence. The objective of this report is to determine the Time of Travel from Horton Bridge on the River Torridge to Fordmill Bridge, Ashmansworthy Bridge and the R. Torridge / Dipple Water confluence.
