Natural England – Water Quality monitoring on the River Camel

To support the targeting of mitigation efforts within the Catchment Sensitive Farming initiative, Westcountry Rivers Ltd was commissioned to undertake a water quality monitoring programme from September to December 2014.  The monitoring programme involved spot sampling at 22 locations within the Camel catchment alongside continuous monitoring at four locations selected by agreement between Natural England and Westcountry Rivers Ltd. Water sample analysis and continuous monitoring was designed to detect potential organic inputs and suspended sediment.
