Yenda flood works hold strong in heavy rainThursday June 13, 2013 - 13:56 EST
Yenda's recent flood works have already proven a success and they're yet to be finished.
Griffith Council is spending $320,000 to improve drainage in the village where some residents are still out of home after last year's flood.
The Council's General Manager, Brett Stonestreet says the works are only in the first stage but things are already looking up.
"The drainage works at Yenda are progressing well," said Mr Stonestreet.
"Council has already had positive feedback from residents in regards to reduced impact of the 30 - 40mm of rain we've had recently."
"The next job for us to do is install a pump, could even be two pumps at Yoogali to assist with getting water out of the CBD during storm events and that will happen by July."
