We do not maintain a permanent Press Office but are happy to offer specialist comment on topics that fall within the wide remit of hydrology. As our members are from many different public and private organisations, it is rarely appropriate for us to issue official BHS statements but as professionals we aim to present our disciplines in the best possible light and with appropriate back-up factual information. Calls/emails to either of the contacts given below will be followed up to the best of our ability by seeking more information relevant to the enquiry.
