“A river is not just what you are used to seeing. A river has an ordinary flood plain, which is the one that is activated in common events; and in turn it has a floodplain of a historical or episodic nature that is activated in long periods of time.
“Those fluvial environments are clearly defined from the geological point of view by the material present. And from the geomorphological point of view, because of the shape. It happens that the wrong areas are being occupied, which has to do with this historical channel. All the infrastructure that has been affected is located in critical places, ”he explained to VillaNos Radio.
And he remarked: "It is not that the river floods the cities, the cities are flooding the rivers"
Barbeito insisted that torrential rains are of low frequency, but that does not indicate that they will not happen again. “They have happened, they happen and they will continue to happen. They are storms that have the characteristic of being very localized ”, he indicated and remarked that it is necessary to know the geomorphological profile of the rivers and avoid advancing on their historical channels.
“In the satellite images it is clearly seen what is the scope of the rivers. We are getting into places that we should not occupy ”, he reiterated.
