Alleviation of over-abstraction of Chalk groundwater in the Upper River Ivel
Earlier in 2022, thanks to your generosity of Reviuvels members and others who very kindly donated we were able to commission the services of John Lawson (a renowned specialist in this field) to conduct a study on the upper Ivel and make recommendations as to how to save our river.
His draft report was discussed in detail at a recent meeting with the Environment Agency (EA) and Affinity Water. John Lawson and Charles Rangeley-Wilson OBE (author, conservationist, and Chair of a national chalk streams restoration group) supported RevIvel at the meeting.
