Author: C.S. Reynolds
Document Type: Monograph
The purpose of this report is threefold: first, it provides a statement of the relations between water quality difficulties, caused by algal growth in the Whitacre/Shustoke Reservoir system, and the current installations and operational practices; second, it suggests the available approaches to their solution, bearing in mind the opportunities provided in the main project to introduce structural or operational features as part of the general improvements at Whitacre and Shustoke; third, it indicates the further studies that would be required to establish their comparative merits.
