The Colne Valley Landscape Partnership is seeking views on the Colne Valley and the proposed ‘Landscape on the Edge’ bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund – and you can help!  Please  fill in the questionnaire at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ColneValleyLPS 

The Colne catchment is suffering from low flows as there has not been enough water re-charging the aquifers over the winter.This is especially noticeable in the Upper Colne at London Colney.

Thames 21 are holding monthly events along the Rivers Pinn & Fray's  in the London Borough of Hillingdon to enhance the river and its surroundings

All Thames21 events are on www.Thames21.org.uk/events/

The Colne Valley Fisheries Consultative has launched a new Project to enable the public to report and map pollution incidents in the Colne catchment. 

Uxbridge Rover Angling Club members and volunteers  cleared about 10 tons of pennywort from the Colne in Denham Country Park

Blackbirds Farm Sewage Treatment Works (STW) in Radlett  will come back on line in the next few days, probably starting on Thursday afternoon. Flows will increase by between five and eleven millions gallons a day and given the exceptionally low flows in the river through Watford while the STW has been off line you should expect to see a flush through of potentially hazardous material. Please keep an eye open, expect increased depths and flows and report any signs of pollution immediately to the EA 0800 807060. Information courtesy of the Colne Valley Fisheries Consultative.

The  DiscoverWater.co.uk website (http://www.discoverwater.co.uk/)  allows people to check how their local water company is performing and to compare with other companies.  Led and funded by water companies, (with overview and scrutiny from regulators and consumer watchdog), it brings together information about how water and sewerage services are provided.
