The River Ver is a chalk stream that joins the River Colne near Bricket Wood. Chalk streams are globally rare habitats and there are around 240 of them in England with 10% located within our supply area.
Over the centuries, chalk streams like the River Ver have been changed for many reasons including moving them to work with field boundaries, straightened for mill races or relocated for housing. These changes mean that the rivers are less resilient to changes in climate and drought conditions.
We are working with the support of the Environment Agency and others to Revitalise Chalk Rivers. The aim is to make chalk rivers in our supply area more natural again so that they are less likely to suffer from low flows and have a good variety of habitats for wildlife.
The project started in September 2019 and was completed in January 2020. The project involved:
The area may take some time for the vegetation to re-establish following the construction work taking place in the autumn/winter period.
