Title: Pollution control on the River Alt
Author: Anthony Parson
Document Type: Monograph
Annotation: EA additional title info: March 1995
This report describes the pollution control held on the River Alt in 1995. The River Alt is Liverpool's second river; the River Mersey's poor second cousin. Second in profile, second in charm, even the Merseys history of gross neglect and industrial pollution seems to have pushed the Alt, paradoxically, into second place. And as the Mersey improves in quality the Alt once again is the unfortunate runner up. This report outlines the current state of water quality in the Alt system. In doing so attention is given to the location of the particular stretches of the river and its tributaries; to the important influences on water quality according to the areas it flows through; to the schemes currently being undertaken towards improvement of the river.catchment; and finally to the future of the River Alt.
