This report analyses the eutrophication in Rivers Nene and Great Ouse. The aim of the project has been to assess the inpact of phosphorus stripping at major sewage treatment works (STWs) on the Rivers Nene and Great Ouse. Particular emphasis has been placed on sites at Wansford and Offord, where water is pumped from the rivers into Rutland and Grafham Waters, respectively. Phosphorus (soluble reactive phosphorus - SRP and total phosphorus - TP), dissolved iron, chlorophyll a, dissolved oxygen, temperature, secchi depth, phytoplankton, diatom and macrophyte data have been collected between June 1993 and December 1996, at sites along both rivers.
