Localised flooding Jan 25th


There were many areas in Unley that experienced localised flooding during the downpour last week. The most concerning being that it really wasn't that much rain. I had a picture sent to me of water flowing under a private bridge built over Brown Hill Creek. It only had about 300 mm clearance. There was also flooding in King William Rd and more locally in Homer Rd and Lorraine Ave. Council is investigating these (and others) where flooding  occurred and is  preparing a report for council to consider. It seems sometimes that even with council doing more, infill development and increased surface run off  are  increasing the run off and ever increasing amounts.
