Title: Monitoring of tidal water for EC dangerous substances list I and II, 1990
Author: J. Driver
Document Type: Monograph
Each year monitoring is carried out in the region at selected discharges and associated receiving water sites in accordance with the requirements of the EC Dangerous Substances Directive. Discharges included in the programme are those where previous work has shown them to contain significant concentrations of the substance in question. A significant discharge has been defined as one where measurable levels occur in the discharge which are equal to or greater than the Environmental Quality Standard (EQS) which is set for the receiving water. Compliance with the Directive is assessed on an annual basis against standards laid down for the receiving waters. The 1990 data has recently been reported to the DoE.
