Title: Wimbleball pumped storage scheme : review of environmental statement (appendix B3) : implications for water quality in Wimbleball Reservoir, the River Exe (non QUASAR) parameters) and the Exe estuary
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
South West Water Services Ltd (SWWS) has applied to the National Rivers Authority (NRA) for a licence to abstract water from the River Exe to Wimbleball Reservoir. The application was accompanied by an Environmental Statement (ES). WS Atkins (WSA) was commissioned by the NRA to review Appendix B3 (of the ES) "Water Quality - Non- QUASAR and Reservoir Analyses", to comment upon the implications for water quality in the Exe estuary and to advise on monitoring requirements. Appendix B3 is concerned with the likely implications for water quality in the reservoir (all parameters) and the river system (parameters other than dissolved oxygen, temperature, pH, biochemical oxygen demand, ammonia and nitrate).
