Little Floods


Wednesday, 12 January 2011

I am sure you have heard about all the flooding in Queensland and Northern New South Wales; affecting an area the size of France and Germany combined.  Luckily I have never experienced a disaster like that – only the bushfires of 1967 in Tasmania.

But last winter, due to heavy rainfall, the people living in my street could hold a regatta on the road – after that we contacted the local council to complain about the water situation. They are now putting in more drains so the water will seep away more easily.

What are some other things the local council is responsible for in your community?
