An update this morning. We have been undertaking further sampling in Cullercoats, in and around the harbour to get further data for an extra one month i.e. one month after the EA Bathing Water Sampling season, which ended in September. We have also been sampling two window / boreholes that were drilled / installed in August 2021 in the footpath directly above the caves at the harbour. We have been sampling ground water from these two points since August 2021. The final day we have planned for NWG sampling is now 26th October 2021, when we will have an excellent suite of sampling data, which will be evaluated for inclusion in the WINEP Cullercoats final report.
To get the information fully evaluated together with all the other investigations we have undertaken this year, completion of the final report will now be in November 2021.
I'll keep you updated, as always and very much appreciate any posts on our NWG Community Portal for this project.
