On 20 November 1989 NRA South West Region received a report from South West Water Pic that high levels of aluminium had entered the distribution system of Lowermoor Water Treatment Works.

Ten works were examined on 21 November 1989. One works was used as a control site. This works was outside the Lowermoor distribution system.
