We watched a man being winched all the way down to the bottom of the dam, and then noticed that there were some others already on the ground at the bottom, we couldn’t work out what they were doing.  An impressive piece of engineering, but nothing will ever bring back all of the trees and animals that lost their lives for the sake of this monstrosity!  Now they have even done feasibility studies into draining the dam and working out how long it will take for the land to return to its original condition – as if that would ever be possible.
