Title: Study into the effect of Chertsey STW on the North Arm of the River Bourne
Author: Paul Downing
Document Type: Monograph
The River Bourne downstream of Chertsey STW has been regularly failing its IB RQO Classification at Bourne above Thames (TQ 0670 6570) on the ammoniacal nitrogen parameter, and also at Hamperstone Bridge (TQ 0350 6720) on the dissolved oxygen parameter (RQO 2A). This study attempts to explain the reasons for these failures and to determine the best course of action to prevent further failures. Data used in this study results from three, 24 hour surveys conducted over the dry 1991 summer and older archived material dating back several years.
