Rivers & Wetlands Group Spring Meeting

March 24, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
The instability of the Misbourne aquifer

If you are interested in the state of the rivers and streams of the Chilterns, then do come along to our Rivers and Wetlands Group’s Spring meeting to hear the latest news.

Haydon Bailey, the Chiltern Society geologist and an expert on the local chalk, will talk about the impact of HS2 on the Misbourne and after lunch there will be a visit to Shardeloes Lake and Chalfont St Giles to assess the geology of the area.

Sue Crooks, hydrologist, will present the rainfall and groundwater level data – the low level of water in the aquifer is causing concern and up to date information will be presented.

We will be updated on the various projects and activities across the AONB.

Our own River Watchers will give us an update on their personal observations on all of the major streams in the area.

If you are joining us for the afternoon session, please bring lunch with you.

There is free parking at the weekends in the Chiltern Council’s car park in King George V Road adjacent to the Community Centre.
