Larne Lough, Co. Antrim, environmental survey 1992: survey of current physico-chemical and biological status of receiving waters in relation to discharge of effluent from the Larne sewage treatment works. Includes analysis of water quality (e.g. BOD-5, COD, suspended solids, nutrients, bacteria, oxygen) and benthos fauna and sediment survey (redox, particle size analysis, bacteria, total organic carbon). Larne Lough and Island Magee, Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland 1991: investigation of discharges to semi-enclosed embayments. Current status of local areas assessed by water quality, sediment and hydrodynamical analysis. Water quality survey, Co. Down, 1991: provision of bacteriological (total coliforms, faecal coliforms, faecal streptococci, salmonella), BOD-5, COD, organic carbon and suspended solids and particle size analysis as part of water quality survey off Ballymartin and Ballyhornan in connection with sewage outfalls.
