Title: Investigation into storm discharges at Ipplepen Sewage Treatment Works
Author: S. Hunter
Document Type: Monograph
A request was received from Environment Protection to investigate the frequency of storm sewage discharges to the stream from Ipplepen Sewage Treatment Works. A Stormlog event monitor was deployed at the works in order to determine the frequency and length of any discharges. A Stormlog event monitor was installed at Ipplepen Sewage Treatment works on 28th November 1998. The sensor was positioned in the exit pipe of the storm discharge chamber. The Stormlog was downloaded on 3 occasions: 5th January 1999; 27th Januaiy 1999; 11th February 1999. It was downloaded and removed on 12th March 1999, but due to a laptop computer fault the dates and times of any events between 11th February and 12th March were lost. Rainfall data from two rainfall gauges was collected during the period of the investigation.
