Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
Following the publication of the CIRIA special Publication 69 in 1989 the NRA Thames Region was instructed by the Department of the Environment to ensure adequate monitoring of groundwater levels in the London Area and to consider options for controlling their rise. This report covers further progress in improving the monitoring network, an update of trends in groundwater levels and modelling to investigate control options. This report is mainly concern with the confined chalk aquifer of the Central London Basin but does extend NW and SE to include areas of the unconfined chalk aquifer in the SW Chilterns and N Downs. The area covers 300 km2 form Harlow in the north to Crowydon in the South and along the Thames from Staines in the west to Dartford in the east.
