New Gauge Board Installed

A water monitoring gauge board has been installed in the stream in Flood Lane. This, with two boards upstream in the Westbrook Stream and the water measurement levels taken on the allotment watercourses will contribute to a better understanding of how water levels fluctuate in the Westbrook catchment and inform management.

Thanks are due to the Friends of Westbrook and Stonebridge Pond who purchased the gauge boards and to Nigel of the Friends who calibrated the Flood Lane board to Ordnance data, Newlyn Cornwall.
