A healthy river must flow to the sea

Description

Water flowing out to sea is not a waste. It is vital to the health of the ecosystems that live around the mouth and further out into the marine zone. The river acts like the blood system of the land around it shifting nutrient and oxygen along its length. Finally it reaches the kidneys (lakes) and the salts and other compounds are extracted out of the are expelled. The environment needs a free frlowing river with no additional engineering solutions. Nature does it for you.
