Preserving our waterways
Our Rivers and Wetlands Group works tirelessly to safeguard the best interests of the Chilterns’ waterways; an important habitat for many species of flora & fauna. There are both natural and man-made threats to these precious habitats, including over-abstraction and inappropriate building developments in the region.
Working closely alongside other interested organisations, including the Environment Agency and Natural England, this important conservation group promotes the improvement and protection of Chiltern rivers, streams, ponds and brooks.
The group is currently involved with a number of projects including routine inspection and recording of the health, flow, flora and fauna of our rivers, working with the Environment Agency on various schemes to alleviate low river flows and compiling a comprehensive database archive of river information.
