Clarence River near Plains Station

An historical picture of a large sand "slug" deposited in a flood flow channel of the Clarence River.
Bands of sedimentation and sand are not uncommon in the river and its tributaries.
Strong environmental river flows tend to mitigate against these bands permanently blocking or altering the course of the Clarence.
Increased water allocation or significant additional water diversion potentially diminishes natural flushing processes.

Perhaps we can take one of those slugs and dump it on Howard's front lawn just to give him an idea of what it is all about.
