Dredge the river Avon
In my childhood I can remember the Avon being continuosly dredged by , I think it was called, the Harry Brown dredger.
in the light of the recent flooding of the portway it occurred to me that if the river basin was cleared of silt there would be more capacity in the river for water to flow.
Why the contribution is important
1 less likelihood of flooding
2 capacity for larger ships to navigate in to Bristol.
3 more attractive looking river/river bank
4 ??? Is the mud any use for fertilizer/spa treatment ??? - ok - this is a longshot!
