"Reconnecting flood-plains to rivers will help reduce the risk of future flooding, suggest US scientists."
Excuse me, but did they evidently miss the importance of flood-plains in the first place? Amazingly, allowing nature to do what it already does will have less of an impact on the ecosystem, thus saving money on infrastructure to try to control high waters. And we all know how well those work.
