4. Local River Monitoring Group
- Learn more about the current state of the river
- Identify specific problems facing the catchment
This project aims to establish a local monitoring group to keep an eye on the river.
Focused in and around Widford parish, local volunteers would keep a regular eye out for any erosion of the banks, silting and flooding on the River Ash as it flows through the valley below the village. They will keep careful records with the relevant dates and duration of these occurrences, in particular noting and marking the fluctuations in the water flow below Affinity Water’s pumping station.
This idea is being publicized locally via Widford Parish Magazine.
