Given we had a few silted drains and the promise of more rains, it was an opportune day to ensure they could flow freely. The main issues were around Brown Street in Castlemaine.
And a few hundred metres away was the real cause, a silted up catch drain that was diverting a large quantity of water towards the pedestrian crossing. That’s now been dug out and directed to flow through a culvert, just hidden by the digger bucket.
Next week’s weather is looking interesting, so check back on Monday for details of workdays.
