Title: The restoration of the River Ver : the success story of a collaborative project between the National Rivers Authority, Three Valleys Water and the Ver Valley Society
Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
This brief NRA leaflet describes the restoration of the River Ver. The River Ver flows through the Chiltern Hills close to the Bedfordshire/Hertfordshire border, skirts the village of Redbourn, and continues through St Albans before joining the River Colne at Bricket Wood. Being a typical chalk stream the Ver is fed from springs and seepages discharging from the natural underground reservoir, the aquifer, that lies in the chalk beneath the river. The amount of flow in the river is dependant upon the water table which is the level of water in the aquifer.
