Author: Anthony Heard
Document Type: Monograph
The Coombe Valley Stream near Kilkhampton has a River Ecosystem classification of RE1. There were significant RE failures for BOD in both 1999 and 2000 assessment years. Previous surveys of the catchment by the Environment Protection Central Team had failed to highlight any potential sources of elevated BOD. The Environment Protection Team requested that wet weather sampling be conducted to identify areas of elevated BOD in the catchment. The objective of this report is To identify areas of elevated BOD in the Coombe Valley catchment under wet weather conditions, and direct EP Field Team to areas of concern.
