Our rivers and chalk streams are a hugely important characteristic of our green and blue spaces. But the repeated flooding in Long Marston is a problem. That’s why I’m working with the Environment Agency and Hertfordshire County Council to find a solution and make sure it’s implemented. I’m also putting pressure on Thames Water to invest in their River Chess operations to prevent sewage overflow, including an additional storm well. This will protect our local environment from contaminated flooding for future generations.
