    Those that get upset about dredging should understand that if you dredge the river you increase the depth thus increasing the volume at low tide you then increase the drainage . The RSPB has too much sway in my opinion in the UK.
    So true.

    If I have a one Gallon bucket I can only carry one Gallon, if I have a two Gallon bucket I can carry two.

    Its as simple as that, so all the people saying dreading won't work then please suggest something else!
    But one gallon bucket or two gallon, it doesn't make much difference if you've got 1000 gallons of water to shift. Even when dredged the rivers have only got so much capacity and the amount of water coming off the catchment area is, I suspect, way in excess of what they can carry.
    Not strictly true - if the rivers had more capacity the pumping would be effective earlier, shortening and lessening the flooding impact (oddly enough, just like it used to be before the maintenance stopped)"
