This report presents the findings of a preliminary investigation undertaken to assess the extent of saline water ingress into Curry Moor near North Curry, Taunton. This work was prompted by allegations that salt water is being allowed to enter moorland from the River Tone during flood conditions. Two sites were chosen for the investigation, Burrowbridge on the upper tidal section of the Parrett and Hook Bridge on the Tone, near to the point where the water flows into the moorland rhyne system. A site on the lower tidal Parrett in Bridgwater was also chosen for comparison.
