D6 -Upstream Stannery
Site D6 is 5 km from the Doves source, it is approximately 4 m wide and has an upstream catchment of 8.1 km2. The site is in the shadow of Chrome Hill and here the river flows along a transition between Millstone Grit and Carboniferous limestone. Relatively low conductivity readings indicate minimal groundwater inputs.

D22
S16 - Dovedale spring
Site S16 is located in a surface spring. Conductivity is 3-times higher than in the main river channel and the water temperature is very consistent. The river discharge increases through Dovedale and, therefore, the small surface springs are probably indicative of more substantial sub-surface groundwater inputs into the river. The spring sensor has been recording since July 2013.
