So what has sparked this? I thought that it it is law for there to be an amount of over property run off during a rain event. Well that's what I was told. You can not expect drainage that was designed 50 years ago to now cope with the extra sheds, house extensions and land subdivisions. Even encouraging residents to have water tanks that can store an amount of the roof run off would help lesson the amount of run off, these water tanks can then be used for watering lawn and gardens during dryer days.

Can't wait till my property is no longer classed as flood affected area.
