STOP BENGEO QUARRY 28th February 2017
Hertford's Quarry Water Pollution
Water Pollution Monitoring is not enough. The Hertford Quarry may go ahead if pollution is just being monitored. If any accident happens monitoring will be too late.
The chalk aquifer supplying Hertford’s water is easily polluted, but hard to clean up. The proposed quarry at Bengeo threatens vital boreholes that pump water from the chalk underlying the sand and gravel. We need the water, we don’t need the sand and gravel. Leave this field to the skylarks.
