Flooding continues on Kangaroo IslandJosh Bevan, Nikolai Beilharz, Wednesday October 2, 2013 - 15:40 EST
Since heavy rains flooded the MacGillivray and Haines areas of Kangaroo Island in June, farmers have faced the challenge of no natural drainage out to sea.
Local sheep farmer Peter Lowering says the unique area of Kangaroo Island his farm is on, and an absence of nearby creeks prevents the water from draining.
Andrew Boardman, CEO of the Kangaroo Island Council, says they are being selective about repairing roads because they are worried more damage than good is being done.
