Heavy Rain Causes Flooding

The heavy rain in early October caused flooding of Northways Road near Kurnai school crossing.

Council and Gippsland Water workers were busy knee deep in water trying to unblock the culvert.

The overflow for the Green Inc ponds was covered with debris while water rushed over it under the road and down in Mathison Park where it further eroded the bank of Eel Hole Creek and the waterway to the lake, where it commenced to flood the seated area.
