Priority Hazardous Substances, Trace Organics and Diffuse Pollution (Water Framework Directive): Surface Water Drains and Intermittent Discharges from Sewer Networks

Price: £12  

This report has been produced as part of a research programme to improve the water industry’s understanding of the presence of priority substances in sewage. Discharges of priority substances from surface water drains, domestic septic tanks and storm and emergency releases from sewer networks were assessed. The dilutions that are required to meet EQS are generally fairly low. In some cases discharges may occur during storms before river flows have built up. However, it is probable that in many cases additional control measures may not be merited based on considerations relating to priority substances alone.
