    Farm in the flood.

    They do,it’s saved their arses because Lincoln was about to flood on Friday night but that bank burst relived the pressure. The ea have been next to useless and farmers have had to think on their feet to try and save what they have got,one who has holiday lodges needed a pump to keep the water...

    Do we need to bring back the NRA

    That’s saved me going back to the office to try and find it . I am not aware of any way of seeing what the ea plans to do with the money,the idb do a great job and imho they should have charge over all the rivers in our area,the ea are just not fit for purpose anymore

    Do we need to bring back the NRA

    To the ones who say dredging doesn’t work,could you tell us how Holland manages or have they thrown in the towel like we have! After all they are covered by the same eu water framework that the ea says stop us from maintaining the rivers

    Do we need to bring back the NRA

    I I am sorry but you are plain wrong about river capacity not mattering, I can only go on what I have seen locally with the Witham,at low tide at Boston there is little more than a trickle because the silt that has been allowed to build up removes the capacity to get rid of the water.
