New River Planned Flood Prevention' Scheme BRITISH PROPOSAL A big new Hood prevention scheme, which it is hoped will protect the fer tile agricultural area of Eastern Eng land known as the Fens, has been initiated. The scheme is the largest of its kind to be undertaken since the Fens were first scientifically drained three hund-j red years ago.

Large areas of the Fens were Hooded last year with heavy loss to jigrieul- ' fure in the area. .Such inundations are caused by a coincidence of high spring tides with the extra vi lume of water from a heavy rainfall draining off the land. In the past the river banks have hron prrgiTssiwly raised to counteract this* and also the fact that the land is dropping at a rate of an inch per year. Tue foundations will not now support any greater weight and an alternative i!i'lh-;;l - f keeping down the level of the water...
