This report attempts to assess the impact of the hydrology on the instream biota by examining the nature of the physical habitat within the main river and consequently developing a flow-habitat-biota relationship. A physical survey of the West and East Glens from their source to the confluence was undertaken between 21/8/89 and 28/9/89. Measurements in the field were taken at every 50 m or at every riffle site, whichever was the closer. At each point, the location was assigned one or more of the following characteristics i.e. riffle, pool, run, dry, no visible flow and visible flow. Channel width and water width were also recorded to the nearest 10 cm.
