This report describes the progress of a BGS-Environment Agency (EA) co-funded project aimed at contributing to the assessment of the potential contaminant pathways in the hyporheic zone of the Skerne catchment in Co. Durham, UK, and to the understanding of connectivity between the River Skerne and the Magnesian Limestone aquifer. In this study we provide direct measurements of the shallow hyporheic zone composition using a network of multilevel minipiezometers at selected locations in the Skerne catchment and present a broad assessment of the hydrochemical variations of this zone observed within and across the sites. A first pass conceptual ground model of the selected sites was also derived.
