Residents glad Sunwater didn't attend flood meeting

RESIDENTS affected by the Callide floods are reportedly feeling calmer after an information night with the State Emergency Management's inspector general Iain MacKenzie.

Jambin farmer Tammy Harch was one of more than 300 people to attend the evening and said it was just as well SunWater, the company in charge of operating Callide Dam, did not attend.

"It was good they didn't come or the meeting wouldn't have stayed civil," she said.

"The Inspector General couldn't tell us much. We are hopeful they change how the dam was operated, but we know it's going to be hard."

Organisers, Biloela Enterprise president Alan McTaggart said most people were concerned about communications from SunWater.

"We knew (the rain) was coming. Locals didn't like that they were turfed out of their beds at 10pm at night," he said.
