The River Mole is the major tributary of the River Taw and rises on Exmoor at Darlick Moors and flows south west for approximately 34 Km before its confluence with the River Taw at Junction Pool. The River Mole has a River Ecosystem Use Class target of 2. For the purpose of this desk study, the Environmental Quality Standards (EQSs) appropriate for the protection of salmonid fish will be adopted for all sites investigated. The aim of this investigation is to determine if metal concentrations in the final effluent are causing the EQS at the downstream site of South Molton STW as specified in the Ups and Downs' progamme.
