Title: South Cornwall coastal streams : catchment action plan
Author: National Rivers Authority South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
This plan includes the Leha, Lamoma, Trevaylor and Rosemorran streams, the Newlyn River and Chyandour Brook draining into the west side of Mounts Bay and centred on the towns of Penzance and Newlyn. The area is popular with families for holidays. Therefore it requires high quality standards for the water environment. A major resewerage scheme is now being developed in the area to improve bathing water quality. Market gardening, particularly cultivation of potatoes, brassicas and daffodils have influenced water quality in recent years. The Drift Reservoir is situated on the Newlyn River and supplies drinking water for the area. The aims of the plan are to achieve water quality objectives, protect public water supplies by developing sensible land use practices and by the installation of proper sewage treatment facilities.
