This report describes the routine biological discharge monitoring programme to be undertaken by NRA South West Region in 1992. This was a new programme in 1992. The complete monitoring programme covers approximately 203 sewage treatment works with descriptive consents; 100 fish farms; 30 trade effluent discharges; and 5 storm sewage overflows. There are also a number of consented farm discharges in the programme, however the actual number is likely to change between now and next year (1993) owing to a revision of these consents following the first charges being levied on them; many of the consents may be redundant, or need substantial revision. A few consented farm discharges were monitored in 1992, which served to verify the difficulties of locating many of these discharges, but demonstrated the effectiveness of the newly developed methods that are to be used for monitoring them.
