Brockham & Betchworth flooding – call for full geological survey

by Mike Ward on 15 February, 2015

Liberal Democrat Roger Abbott is calling for Surrey County Council to carry out a full geological survey to understand the sources of groundwater flooding threats to Brockham & Betchworth. Please sign his petition.

He says, “The risk of flooding continues to be a major concern in parts of our villages. A large element of this threat comes from groundwater rather than the River Mole or ditches overflowing, although of course these are also causes. The problem is that the underground water systems are not sufficiently well understood to allow effective targeting of prevention measures. So I am campaigning to persuade Surrey County Council to undertake this research. Please help by signing our petition.”
