This report describes the hydrogeological infrastructure that was installed in the Frome and Piddle catchments in Dorset to support the Lowland Catchment Research (LOCAR) Thematic Research Programme. The objectives of the LOCAR Programme are briefly described as are the management structure that was used to achieve those objectives. This is followed by a description of the Frome and Piddle catchments and a brief overview of the financial support for the whole LOCAR programme. A discussion of the design of the infrastructure precedes a description of what was actually installed and a summary of data that is available through the LOCAR Data Centre as a result. Finally, there is a list of equipment purchased using LOCAR infrastructure funds for use by the Catchment Service Teams and by the LOCAR research community.
