|Groundwater levels, June 2015|
In the Chalk the pattern established in recent months continued. Levels were above normal for the time of year at Little Bucket Farm (Kent), but generally levels were normal or below, with below normal levels in western parts of the aquifer (Wessex and western parts of the South Downs) and parts of East Anglia and Yorkshire. Ashton Farm in Wessex recorded its fifth lowest June average level in a 42 year record.
In the Magnesian and Jurassic limestone aquifers levels were either normal or below, and levels in the Carboniferous Limestone of South Wales and Derbyshire remained in the normal range.
