    Stop The Severn Barrage!

    Apparently the residents of the Bay of Fundy voted against a similar scheme. As some one who lives within 50 yards of the Severn it would seem obvious to me that the area would clog with silt very quickly. Other considerations are the increased height of the tides down river from the barage...
