Geocache Description:

THE CO-ORDINATES ARE FOR A SUITABLE PARKING AREA NOT THE LOCATION OF THE BONUS CACHE.
A short easy Series of 5 caches plus a difficult bonus cache. First and second to find certificates can be found in the bonus cache. Thanks to Mike Bradford (Apiskeepers formerly known as DJSniper) for making up the certificates.

Caches are of various sizes some will be big enough for swaps and TB/coins.
Conditions can be very muddy so bring appropriate footwearand essential climbing Gear



******

In order to find the bonus some homework, counting, finding and climbing is involved.
What is behind the waterworks station? Sadly this was the original info from website needed to get the numbers but the website appears to be gone and redirects you to a different website which make solving the puzzle part impossible.

So based on the TITLE of the cache and series this is the website you need to get the correct info.

So on with the clues.
Assuming N51.17.ABC W000.20.DEF.

The answer to C and F can be individually found randomly written on the top of the logbook in the series.
-----------------------
Look for the "Registered in England number" 2nd Digit. E=2nd digit Plus F
-----------------------
Our supply area covers 83? sq km (32? sq miles), much of it rural. B= ? + ?
-----------------------
An average consumer in our area uses around ??A litres a day (?? gallons/day).
-----------------------
85 per cent of our water comes from deep aquifers fed through the chalk in the North Downs or large deposits of greensand in our supply area. This raw groundwater is high quality, as it has been naturally filtered.

Our boreholes are sunk into these aquifers at depths of between ?0-180 metres. The groundwater is pumped to the surface and nearest treatment works.
D= ? - C

-------------------------------------


PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU ATTEMPT THE BONUS CACHE ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN RISK.
YOU SHOULD BE CAPABLE OF CLIMBING. CLIMBING GEAR IS ADVISED!
TAKE EXTRA CARE IN WET CONDITIONS AS THE SURFACES CAN BE EXTREMELY SLIPPERY.
YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE FOUND WATERWORKS 1-5 FIRST (clues in some of caches) BEFORE DOING WATERWORKS BONUS.
ANY THAT HAVEN'T DONE WATERWORKS 1-5 FIRST WILL HAVE LOG REMOVED.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't give away any clues in your logs! Thank you

Good Luck, happy hunting and most importantly have FUN!!

Logging Etiquette:
Geocache hiders sometimes go through a great deal of planning to place their caches.
As a result, they'd like to hear your feedback on whether you liked or disliked any aspect of the hide, the journey or location, or if you feel that some cache maintenance is required.
Single word, acronym, or "copy and paste"logs may be easier when you have a lot of caches to log, but it doesn't tell the hider or other finders anything about your adventure (or lack thereof) in finding the cache.
Please keep this in mind when entering your log.
