Member for Glass House, Andrew Powell MP and Cr Adrian Raedel, Moreton Bay Regional Council are pleased to announce funding that will improve drainage and flood outcomes for residents at Eureka Court in Wamuran.

Mr Powell has worked with the Minister for Local Government to achieve this positive result for residents.

“I am pleased to announce that the Waraba Creek Catchment Project works will allow for significant backflow prevention to alleviate drainage problems that residents have recently experienced, but especially since the 2011 floods,” Mr Powell said.

“It is great to see that on this occasion, both local and state governments have been able to work collectively on a project that will achieve great outcomes for our community.

This project will include design and construction of:

•a levee across a formed channel on Council Drainage reserve located between 32 and 33 Eureka Court.

•a back flow prevention device on the existing 900 mm diameter local drainage piped outlet

•a levee across a formed channel located in an easement at the rear of 32 Eureka Court

•incidental piping, headwalls and back flow prevention to ensure functionality of the existing local drainage infrastructure.

Councillor Adrian Raedel, Division 12 Moreton Bay Regional Council shares Mr Powell’s enthusiasm for this project and what it will mean for residents.

“On behalf of the Wamuran community I’d like to thank the State Member for his efforts to get this project up and running.

“It’s great to see what can be achieved when two levels of Government work together.

“This was one of the areas affected in the 2011 floods and I am happy to see that a positive solution to address the problem has been reached, showing great co-operation by both levels of Government.” Cr Raedel concluded.
