Shire keen for flood studies funding

Tuesday May 7, 2013 - 11:14 EST

The Yarriambiack Shire is trying to secure funding for flood studies at Warracknabeal and Rupanyup.

Earlier this year, the shire decided to upgrade Warracknabeal's weir to better control water flows through the Yarriambiack Creek.

The council wants to review and update its study for the town to account these changes and new culverts at the Rainbow Road Bridge.

It will also discuss financing a flood study for Rupanyup's Dunmunkle Creek at tomorrow's council meeting.

At the Buloke Shire's meeting tomorrow, the council will consider extending the opening season of the Donald swimming pool from October to mid-April.
