Title: North Cornwall coastal streams : catchment action plan
Author: National Rivers Authority South West
Document Type: Monograph
The catchment plan includes the River Crackington and River Valency, together with several small watercourses discharging to the sea around Widemouth Bay. The popular beaches include Trebarwith Strand and Widemouth Bay. The River Valency was affected by discharges of aluminium sulphate from the water supply catchment served by Lowermoor Water Treatment Works. The streams do not support a significant fishery. The aims of the plan are to achieve water quality objectives and enforce pollution control legislation. Functional officers have identified the main challenges to the achievement of environmental objectives. Where solutions are clear they have been programmed. In other cases investigations are needed to determine the way forward.
