Standard hydrochemistry is used in conjunction with fault control to define the directions of groundwater flow in the Keuper Sandstone aquifer in the vicinity of Stratford-upon-Avon. Four hydrochemical groundwater types are defined. The hydrochemistry confirms the presence of a cone of depression in the area, reinforcing the evidence of water level trends. Environmental isotopes are used to substantiate the standard chemistry and show that the water being abstracted is very old groundwater derived from storage.
