Title: Teign estuary post scheme appraisal report of 1991 surveys : final draft report
Author: T. Baker
Document Type: Monograph
The completion of the Teign sewage improvement scheme brought about the requirement for a post scheme appraisal to be undertaken. It was decided that the most appropriate way of approaching this task was to resample a series of intertidal sites along the length of the estuary first studied in 1990 (NRA SW routine work). The samples taken would be processed so that the community structure of the macroinvertebrate infauna of these soft sediments could be assessed. In addition to repeating the August 1990 survey in 1993, two other site visits were undertaken (during March and October) to provide information on seasonal change and highlight any short term effects of the scheme if there were any. The samples taken by NRA staff were processed by a consultancy and the results interpreted within the NRA.
