The Break O’Day Council’s St Marys Flood Risk Management Project was at the St Marys Market on February 3.

The forum informed the community of how potential flooding could be reduced by clearing of the stream, modifying the flat bridge, and through other flood mitigation actions. The community were also urged to have their say.

The Flood Management Project has been in progress since 2010 when a flood significantly impacted the town.

The project is estimated to be complete in June.
