Title: River Deben augmentation feasibility study for iron removal : interim report
Author: National Rivers Authority Anglian Region
Document Type: Monograph
WS Atkins were appointed by NRA at the end of February 1991 to prepare a feasibility study on removing iron from the augmentation borehole for the River Deben sited to the north of Debenham. At the time of appointment it was envisaged that no additional pumping or testing would need to be done and that the report would be submitted within four weeks, based on existing data. However, due to some uncertainty as to the process requirements it was decided to carry out some limited additional testing. This delayed the preparation of the report. The work carried out to date has indicated that a low technology solution of the type originally envisaged by Anglian NRA is unlikely to be effective. This interim report has been prepared as a basis for discussion to decide upon further action.
