I wonder what would happen if they tried to block it during high tide... How long would it take for mother nature to destroy the blockage.

*Even if residential locations are hundreds of kilometers away from this spot, it doesn't make it useless entirely.*
*Offshore data centers could be built next to it. Or some other facilities that can operate offshore.*

How refreshing to see a BBC documentary using proper measures: feet, gallons, miles. The BBC thinks we're all so thick these days that we don't understand these basic measures, so they insist on patronising us almost exclusively with metric.

Extremely High & Low Tides in Guernsey Great natural wonders - tidal 4 months ago   05:05

This happens in Guernsey about once a year. We have one of the largest tidal ranges in the world, 30 feet or 10 metres. The high tide on this day was 10.1m and the low tide was 0.5m above chart datum. Luckily for the shops opposite the Victoria Marina there was a high pressure weather system over us at the time, because otherwise the shops and the road would normally get flooded out with sea water at this tide height.
