Given a long phase of cryptic clues that were supposed to lead to me getting to a point, but were far too cryptic / quite frankly just wrong at points, to actually come up with the answer that was being pushed for. The question was about civil design, of a power plant, and what are the defences that you would consider, then pushed it towards flooding issues.

1 Answer
