Author: P. Rose
Document Type: Monograph
The River Waldon rises at NGR SS 2955 1578 east of Redmondsford. The river flows south east through pasture/ agricultural land for approximately 20.5 km and enters the River Torridge at NGR SS 4255 0790. A request was received from the Water Quality Officer to determine the water quality of the River Waldon upstream of the Routine Monitoring Site (RMS) at Waldon Bridge ((R29C011 at NGR SS 3684 1041). The investigation was carried out by the Investigations Team Devon Area during the winter of early 1995). A recommendation of this work was to carry out a further chemical survey in wet weather during winter to establish whether further pollution occurred and to determine the source. The purpose of this investigation was also to assess areas of concern identified in the previous study and determine if the situation had improved or deteriorated.
