dont hold water back as it finds its way back around

Don't understand?

Nature is constantly moving the course of rivers, many of these divergences or meanders or ox-bows are to make sure the water gets to the sea,and not flood all the land.Many floods now are mans creations.

some rivers have dried up due to water being diverted. the reason why we have floods is because we strip the countryside of its trees and build quick water runoffs and thats what causes flash floods??

Hi John, I think flash floods can also be caused after dry spells and the rain meets hardened earth and all runs off instead of soaking in, so natural as well.   John, this post is a little bit away from the challenge topic of 'Water Appreciation'. It would be great to have a post from you about what you most appreciate water for.

Sensible comment again KatieW,but there is also the massive concreting over over huge numbers of gardens to supply parking spaces for terraced houses ,town houses whatever you want to call them.This too causes flash flooding.
