Abstract

The Rivers Ystwyth and Rheidol have a history of metal pollution (Carpenter, 1924, 1925; Newton, 1944) and many reaches still receive substantial contamination from heavy metals, principally zinc and lead, although there has been considerable improvement in water quality and biological status in recent years, particularly in the r. Rheidol (Jones and Howells 1975). As a consequence of proposals to divert uncontaminated water from the headstreams of both rivers in order to provide a refill source for the enlarged Craig Goch reservoir, a surveillance programme was instituted to provide base-line data for water quality, fisheries and invertebrates. U.W.I.S.T. has implemented a programme designed to provide information on the variety, distribution and relative abundance of aquatic invertebrates: the study of other aspects has been undertaken by South West Wales River Division (1976).
