LAND DRAINAGE TO PREVENT FLOODING - NOT AS CRAZY AS IT SOUNDS!
During the recent floods
weather presenters and news reporters were repeatedly heard
to say "more heavy rain is forecast and where this rain falls
on saturated and waterlogged land there is the risk of flooding"
- very true. Subsequent reports have then concentrated on flood
defences and how to get rid of the water more quickly, even
today attention is focused on dredging.
