River Stour

Article Index

This waterbody has developed problems with both 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. 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.

Carry out further investigation in order to determine the source of pollutants and take the action required to solve the problem.
