The St. Austell River at Molingey Gauging Station (R18A007) failed the Environmental Quality Standard (EQS) for Dieldrin on 31st October 1994. The failure coincided with high rainfall on the day (30mm) and high BOD's at both the gauging station and Pentewan Bridge (R18A008) which is located downstream. No other Dieldrin data was collected that day. Commercial property has been developed on an area once used as a joinery near St. Austell. The objective of this report is to determine the cause of the EC Dangerous Substance Directive EQS failure in the St. Austell River at the monitoring site R18A007.
