[Homework]2014-04-05 英国开始疏浚泰晤士河

The locals have waited decades for this. Diggers slowly clawing a way yields of silt that many blame for the winter's floods. For the environment agency, it's a chance to rebuild trust.-It's good that extra funding that is really making this possible, as come forward from government and 5 million pounds will be spending on the dredging that is gonna be money well-spent, I think, both in terms of reduce flood risk and in terms of a short in the arms in local community during the recovery stage.
It won't be easy, after scens like this. For weeks, the Winslade family could only sail up to their front door.
-You could see day light through like this and hope the ... could stop ..
-So it's not just the dampest, what it's done to the structure as well.
-Absolutely, yeah.
Their home in cattle farm was submerged under a feet of water. They'd already asked for the rivers to be cleared.
-There is an element of distrust, because Lord Smith said to me a year and a bit ago that something on the top of paramount that something will be done within six months. Well, no, no, they didn't.
A wider 20-year plan includs better pumping capacity to move any flood water and a barrage near bridge water to control the tidal rivers, or to try to prevent this happening again.


Bryony Sadler's home wasn't even flooded when they started campaigning. Now, it has to be gutted.
-They digged there and you konw, excavated something there on site, but what they are doing is adding a tea spoon rather than the great big d*.
For watching the progress on day one, this is clearly going to be a slow and laborious job, but they are going to have about 8 of these different sites set up along that 8-kilometer stretch of the River Parrett and the River tone, hoping to clean in total between 300 and 400,000 tons of silt and mud.


Still costing the country billions of pounds are the floods that visit the low levels after heavy rains.
For years, this area has been fighting flooding from 1943 to 2014. The same problems with similar imperfect solutions. Now, this is a small victory for those who demanded this river should be dredged. There with more funding needed, they will continue to fight to make sure their precious piece of Somerset is better protected for the future.
