About

The RevIvel Association

RevIvel came into being at a public meeting on 19th October 2019 to bring attention to the fact that the upper reaches of the River Ivel are dying.
The River Ivel is a perennial chalk stream, meaning it runs all year, supplied by groundwater in the chalk aquifer. In 2019 the river ran dry from it’s source at Ivel Springs to Radwell for the first time in living memory.
The RevIvel Association is made up of a committee that meets regularly and is supported by the Ivel Preservation Association, Radwell Parish Council and North Herts District Council.

The Revivel Association is pleased to be part of the Chalk Aquifer Alliance, a network of chalk stream river groups campaigning for these precious environments.
