Taking samples of river water using the conventional method of filling bottles by hand can be costly and time-consuming. The results obtained from these ‘spot’ samples can, at best, only provide a snapshot of the concentration target compounds which may be present at the time of sampling.
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) provides public access to information held by public authorities. The Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR) are complementary, but are a separate piece of legislation to the FOIA and are used to access environmental information held by public authorities.
The Fieldmouse modelling tool helps you target landscape sources of diffuse pollution, it routes and decays diffuse loads from Farmscoper and similar through the catchment and provides an easy visual assessment of which sources contribute most to the observed concentration.
