South West Regional Group

The BHS South West Group Committee's main purpose is to organise exciting, topical and interesting meetings, related to hydrology, across the South West Region. Meetings are typically held in Bristol, Exeter and Plymouth, though other locations can be considered.

Usually we hold 3 or 4 technical meetings each year. Some meetings are organised jointly with other societies or institutions. All meetings are available for sponsorship - sponsoring provides a logo on the meeting notices, reference on the BHS National and South West website and potential publicity at the meetings (please contact Miguel Rico-Ramirez for information).

Our committee comprises representatives from a wide range of organisations including university researchers, Environment Agency, South West Water and consultants. If you've not been to a meeting before come along, we're a friendly bunch and meetings are free!
