Yes, they've got our name wrong!  Survey, not Society!
It's been more of a wet Christmas than a white one!  The BBC have been interviewing BGS hydrogeologists to find out what impact recent rainfall has had on groundwater levels and the possibility of flooding.

Andrew McKenzie appeared in the lead item on the 6 O'Clock and 10 O'Clock news last week - you can view the clip on the BBC website.  That's our Wallingford office in the background.  We have a few boreholes on site that we use to monitor water levels.  They are also useful for testing equipment like pumps and downhole logging probes before we take them into the field.

Andrew was also interviewed on BBC Radio Berkshire's breakfast show on Monday.
