Essex Rivers Hub

This water body has developed problems with phosphate, and dissolved oxygen levels which both contribute to its overall rating as moderate. Unfortunately there is no data to suggest where these problems are originating from, although point source from local sewage treatment works is suspected. Reduced oxygen levels are often common in summer months because of reduced river flows, higher water temperatures, increased oxygen demand due to increased biological activity and higher effluent proportions in watercourses.
