Title: Cataclews impact assessment summer 1995 : draft data report - Tidal Waters Group
Author: National Rivers Authority South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
As part of the technical appraisal of the Camel Waste Water Treatment Scheme, two surveys were undertaken in the coastal waters offshore of the Cataclews STW. The work was specified by the Tidal Waters Quality Group and undertaken by the Cornwall Area Investigations Team in association with the Tidal Waters Quality Group. The surveys were designed to investigate the tidal regime and dispersion characteristics of the coastal waters in the Mother Ivey's Bay area in North Cornwall. The objective of the surveys was to investigate the impact of a new treated waste water outfall discharging from Cataclews STW on the EC Designated Bathing Waters at Harlyn Bay and Mother Ivey's Bay. The data collected was to be used to determine the presence and location of a shear zone in the flows in the bay as an aid to establishing the most suitable site for the proposed discharge. This report describes the work undertaken during the NRA surveys and presents the data collected. Also included in the discussion section of this report are the results from similar surveys carried out during 1995 by South West Water Services Limited (SWWSL).
