PLANS for extensive drainage works at Maindample township were outlined at a meeting of residents last week.
Maindample is subject to flooding with many residents frequently receiving large volumes of water flowing through their property.
The drainage improvements aim to reduce the impact of future storm events.
Some 13 residents attended the open meeting held at the Maindample Community Park at which Mansfield Shire’s engineering and works manager Amer Tawfik spoke on what can be done to improve drainage.
Included in the plans is the enlargement of two existing water holding detention basins along with the establishment of a new swale drain, new channel and de-silting existing drains, re-grading and raising unsealed roads.
Also under the works will be the re-sheeting and re-grading of Mill Street to raise the level of the road to improve water runoff.
