This investigation concentrates on the impact of discharges from the Buckland Village area may have on the Buckland Stream; an ongoing study is investigating the effect, if any, of the stream on the ECBWD (European Commission Bathing Water Directive) site. The village of Buckland (comprising of West Buckland and East Buckland) at present has no sewage treatment works. Domestic sewage is currently treated by many private septic tanks connected to the properties within the village. Concerns have been raised regarding the pollution of the Bantham Stream due to inputs from the septic tanks albeit direct discharges or soak-a-ways in close proximity to the watercourse. Because the stream runs out over an ECBWD beach there has also been concern that stream water quality may effect bathing water quality.
