Title: Investigation into the storm overflow discharge regime of Hill Barton Seawage Treatment Works Okehampton
Author: T. Cronin
Document Type: Monograph
Hill Barton S.T.W. services Okehampton and the surrounding environs, it discharges treated final effluent into the River. In September 1993 the National Rivers Authority imposed an embargo on the works, due to the environmental effect on the river Okement, caused by the final effluent. The introduction of the embargo attempts to ensure that the problems are not exacerbated, by any increase in the flow of final effluent, or the discharging of crude sewage via the storm overflow.
