While the local rivers are all bursting their banks after the recent rains our main winter storage lagoon has been relatively low of water after the summer use for the salad onions. We have made some repairs to one of the legs of the jetty and filling can now commence! It puzzles me that when there is flood water about and it's merrily washing through peoples houses and blocking roads that we still have to pay to abstract water upstream of the flooding. You could argue that we are providing a public service, less damage to property, less insurance claims and so on, ending with the question, shouldn't we get paid to help?
