    I can see where with your intellectual prowess, you could be inclined to want to believe I just made all that up, so you could say, "Nuh-uh", for no real reason whatsoever. :21:

    Don't forget levees raising the speed of the water as well as the height. That is a big thing here.

    In Missoura we like big government flood protection, bailouts and massive levee systems. The farmers go gaga for them, maybe because they care more about selling off their family's fertile bottomlands for millions after some welfare levee was erected. Then some welfare loving big business comes in and gets a subsudy to buold this or that while driving small businesses who have to pay for space out.

    Big government cycle that will not end imo.

    Dude, if the government would quit bailing out flood victims and let capitalism do its thing I'd be all for it!

    Missoura likes big government though.

    The answer is retention ponds. It is not complicated. If the largest typical rainfall in an area is, for example, 6 inches in a day, developers need to dig and drain their development into a retention pond which is 1/2 acre-ft for every acre of development. It slows down the water into the natural drainage system and neutralizes the impact of the development on flooding.

    The donkey is to blame for the floods.

    It's the ass' fault.

    There is no shortage of non flood land in America. I'm right by the confluence of the continent's two largest rivers. Ita obvious what floods and does not.

    Some land just requires more infrastructure to support. More infrastructure supporting the existence of your home or business makes your county less competitive than the next, America less competitive compared to the Chinese.

    This isn't Holland, we have bottomland good for farm fields and soccer fields. We have plenty of land that doesn't flood.

    This isn't 1880. We have superior technology than the Romans had (but less pragmatism?). We have modern aquaducts so we don't need to live close enough to the river to bathe in it or carry water home in buckets.
