Flooded over knee high whilst on a horse, with hidden rubbish on floor

This would be a regular route for me but the water is filthy and you cannot see what is under it, and prior to it being flooded there was rubbish stones sandbags and pipes on the floor, if it is flooded this much after the rain we have had, then come winter my routes are severely limited. my horse is fine to go through water but for her safety I need to know there are no dangers under the surface, and if we brought the youngster out there is no way she would go near the water and the fast traffic !
