Sidmouth is situated in East Devon at the mouth of the River Sid. The beach there suffers from constant erosion and two breakwaters have now been constructed, off the West end of the beach, to reduce this erosion. A request was received from Regional Tidal Waters, to sample along the length of Sidmouth beach during the Bathing Beach season, to determine if the two new breakwaters have had any effect on the water quality.
