Updated with current maps! Stand for the Colne Valley

Image may contain: tree, plant, sky, outdoor, nature and water

The Colne Valley is a beautiful area of West London with a rich mix of wet woodland, streams, lakes and woods, providing habitats for water voles, kingfishers, eels, badgers, bats and countless more. It sits above a chalk aquifer that provides 22% of Londons drinking water. All this is under threat from HS2 as they plan to pile drive into the aquifer and build construction roads and depots all over the place.

This weekend (8th and 9th February) we anticipate tree felling on the Harvil Road and along the side of the Chiltern Railway line. We have forced HS2 to cancel their felling of these trees on at least two occasions. We need to be there to stand for the trees again.

The road closure is in place from "the early hours of Saturday morning", so we will gather in the trees from Friday evening and stand for them.

Location is the roadside camp, Harvil road, 400m south of the Dogs Trust (UB9 6JW).

Bring snacks, camping gear (some spare available), bring love, but most importantly bring yourselves.

Please watch Erin Brockovich on Netflix asap if you haven’t already. It highlights serious issues with a certain water supply that we are about to experience in 22% of Londons water supply. A recent Freedom of Information request by Sarah Green has exposed that Chromium 6 is apparent in pile drives into our aquifers which they have began just this month. Code Red Alert and media silence. Watch the film!!

Cofferdams in the lakes are showing it already from the concrete plugs already in, legal limit is in the uk 0.05 in drinking water approx in Europe 0.02 America 1. In this lake with cofferdams it’s 45!!!!! We need help.

HS2 are not using Cr(VI) they have been surprised to find such high levels across so many of their sites. They think it is being generated as concrete is drying. The levels in the cofferdams were from the concrete plugs curing. The whole of the Colne Valley Viaduct is across drinking water protected zones. Next HS2 step is the giant concrete pour into 300 deep holes in the aquifer for the Viaduct foundations. This has potential to poison thousands of peoples water.
