Title: Discharge monitoring in the Kennet catchment. Part 1 : ecological effects of sewage and trade effluents
Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
This report is one of a series of reports about the biology of the River Kennet catchment. The series covers all aspects of biological monitoring of the catchment carried out by the NRA Biology Section. Some reports cover the general status of the catchment, whilst others relate to specific problems identified in the Draft Kennet Catchment Management Plan. Sewage Treatment Works (STWs) and trade effluents were considered as a possible source of pollution to be monitored as part of the Kennet Catchment Survey. The main type of pollution from these discharges is organic pollution, and sometimes chemical pollutions. A map showing the location of the discharges monitored for the Kennet catchment survey is given in figure 1.
