Restoring acid waters : Loch Fleet, 1984-1990

edited by G. Howells and T.R.K. Dalziel

During the past five years work has been in progress to examine and treat the acidity of Loch Fleet in south west Scotland and its catchment waters. This text describes the background to the research, the application and effects of liming, and relates the experience gained in the project to practice and research in other parts of the world. In particular the success achieved in restoring fish populations to the loch is described as well as the consequences for other flora and fauna. Important features of the book include: detailed and comprehensive accounts for pre-liming conditions, liming techniques employed, post-liming changes in water quality and fish restoration; documentation of initial pre-application experiments in the laboratory and field, field conditions (soil/water), post-liming and the development of predictive models of duration of liming treatments; independent studies of hydrology of site, transfer of deposited acidity through vegetation and soil to surface waters; and consequences to non-target ecosystem components (terrestrial and aquatic).
