Very interesting and explained well. Thanks.

What did strike me was that nowhere in this conversation did it mention a breach caused by such things as tree blow-downs, piping, embankment slumps etc.
Surely the risk of flood is still extremely high with  an inability to inspect, and the huge risk of flood caused by piping etc?
No amount of spillways etc. will make any difference because the water will not 'overtop' the crest in these situations. So the risks are still there.
