The Reservoir
Once again, a massive reservoir is being proposed to be built
between Abingdon and Steventon, as part of Thames Water's
Water Resources Management Plan.
Oxfordshire County Council, the Vale of White Horse District Council,
East Hendred and other local Parish Councils are opposed to this
There are several publicity events being hosted by Thames Water,
where you can find out more.  The next local event will be at
Steventon Village Hall, Saturday 18 February, 2 to 8pm.

The Group Against Reservoir Development - GARD were
highly successful in opposing the proposed reservoir.
See the attached newsletter from GARD for more information
about the campaign against the reservoir.
