I HAVE read with interest comments on The Press letters page about flooding, pollution, etc.

Surely the siting of sewerage treatment plants on a river bank can only lead to them being inundated during flooding.

What is the point of pumping floodwater into a waterway which cannot deal with it in the first place?

As I believe that 25 per cent of the Netherlands was reclaimed from the sea, why do they seem to be on top of flooding problems?

It can only point to so-called experts’ opinion being questionable to say the least.
