    About

    East Kent is one of the driest parts of the country. Groundwater supplies 80% of the areas drinking water and also provides important base-flow to the river systems. The groundwater quality across the catchment is poor status under the Water Framework Directive. The link between water-use and the water available to support the natural environment cannot be over-stated.
