The idiots are just giving those oxygen thief lawyers a bit more ammo for their silly class action.

Haven't even had an inch of rain here yet, gonna need another 3-4 inches to get the streams upstream of Wivy flowing. The massive flood compartment is totally empty, panic sure is the word to describe this action.

Cheers,
Dave.

heard the release at Wivenhoe has already had devistating effect to the local streams in Rockhampton with localised flash flooding. There was something about the road being cut as well due to the Wivenhoe release, was that the Bruce between Cairns and Tully?

What are you talking about? Wivenhoe is no where near Rockhampton and even further for Cairns  :o

It seems like Wivenhoe gets blamed for everything.... I think that's what he means.

I found out you are able to sing up on seqwater web site to get a sms text message when they are releasing water from Wivenhoe, Summerset and north pine.
