Abstract

Bardsey is a small island off the Welsh coast. Water supplies are drawn from spring sources but water shortages are experienced in summer. Sanitation depends on Elsan type toilets. There are limited groundwater resources in the Gwna Mélange, which is of Monian age, with groundwater transport controlled by fracture flow. There is evidence of some groundwater contamination.
