Annotation: EA additional title info: Environmental Protection section Cornwall area final draft report september 1999: COR/99/032
The East Looe River significantly failed the River Ecosystem (RE) River Quality Objectives (RQO) for BOD downstream of Moorswater Driers (81420280) and marginally failed downstream of Liskeard STW (81420269) and at Trussel Bridge (81420261). The latter two sites have an RQO of 2 (4.0 mg/l for BOD) while the former site has an RQO of 1 (2.5 mg/l for BOD). Archive data showed that increased concentrations of ammonia were found in samples with high BOD. The objective of this document is to identify cause(s) of RE non-compliance at 81420280, 81420269 and 81420261 and make recommendations to ensure future compliance.
