Chalk stream water crisis

Hard to believe on this wet Friday that many of our rivers in south east and eastern England are facing a massive water shortage crisis, but it’s absolutely true. The EA’s April 2019 Water Situation Report makes exactly this point, reinforced by what many conservation groups are seeing on the ground, and indicates that the situation may well not improve into the autumn and even maybe spring 2020. A dossier produced by a group of NGOs, including WTT, informs a piece in today’s Times, including a call for action from government; read the tragic tale HERE.

We, and our invaluable chalk streams, are running out of water.
