Locations of sample sites in England. (A) Modified from Williams et al. . For (B) and (C), numbers in circles represent the number of obstructions to fish movement (either weirs or locks). Locks in the Kennet and Thames below ThaWhi have fish passes for salmon movements, but are likely to represent a barrier to movement of roach. In the upper river Lee, only weirs over 1 m are shown. PE = population equivalents, which relates to the size of the population served by the waste water treatment works. The different colours used to depict the rivers represent predicted mean estrogenicity (E2 equivalents in ng/L) .
