UK flooding - what are your thoughts?

With what seems like much of the UK currently under water, I wanted to find out if any of our UK FWWs (or even those from elsewhere) have any thoughts or questions on the topic?

I thought I'd pose the question on a Friday to initiate some discussion over the weekend. No one will be able to go out because of the torrential rain, and we do so love to talk about the weather...

Do you think nitrates/phosphates are likely to have gone up or downas a result of the flooding?

Regards

Neil

Hi Neil,

Concentrations of nitrates and phosphates are likely to have gone up to begin with, as more washed off the land into the water. However, because we had so much rain over such a long period, the concentrations will have fallen again as they will have been really diluted by all the water.
