Dredging River Neath

When was the River Neath last dredged?

The floods in Somerset are a warning to authorities who have neglected dredging their rivers, often due to financial considerations.

At one time the River Neath was dredged on a regular basis with due consideration to the sewage outfalls near the town centre, which build up silt over a period.

With the town of Neath lying in a valley, it is important that regular attention is given to river maintenance.   The authorities must be prepared for flash flooding, which could happen at any time.   What is happening in Somerset is a lesson that must be considered.
