The Bradiford Water is a small tributary of the River Taw and rises west of Berry Down in north Devon. The river flows south then south west for approximately 15 km before its confluence with the River Taw estuary. The single routine chemical monitoring site, Blakewell (R30A001 at NGR SS 5663 358), is designated under the EC Directive for the Protection of Salmonid Fish and has a current River Ecosystem Use (RE) Class target of 2. However, it is being considered that in the future this target will be increased to an RE class of 1. In this study, the area concerned has been investigated to identify possible cause of poor water quality of the watercourse.
