Pollutant type

Sediment

Priority

Moderate

Source category

Farmyard, Arable Livestock field, Verge erosion

Land use

LHB: Livestock field

RHB: Livestock field

Observations:  Evidence of sediment ingress into the watercourse from the livestock field to the south via road runoff. Margins of the roads clearly eroded from previous discharges and gullies forming.  Evidence of runoff from an arable field to the north, flowing onto the road via a farmstead, which is likely to be delivering elevated sediment and nutrient concentrations to the watercourse.
