I don't know of many farmers who are interested in keeping their land
under water for even short periods of time. Ostensibly, this is another
of many band aid approachs to the real problem.
That problem is that since most watersheds ,say in the midwest, are
probably over 80 per cent agriculture and most of these farms are not
interested in increasing infiltration and/or water holding capacity you
are going to experience an increase in frequency and severity of
flooding. Your agency should be a proponent in promoting organic
agriculture which does exactly what was previously enumerated and what
conventional agribusiness growers totally disregard.
If I have a problem , I prefer to address it rather than its symptoms.
