FLOOD­ING AVERTED

Kalamunda Reporter - - Opinion -

THUMBS up to the City of Swan, which was forced to dig out a chan­nel to di­vert wa­ter in the Ben­nett Springs area af­ter heavy rain caused re­cent flood­ing.

It fol­lowed City staff inspecting drains and in­stalling a pump near Mar­shall Road to di­rect wa­ter to­ward Ben­nett Brook. The twin mea­sures kept the wa­ter from reach­ing hous­ing.

Peo­ple con­cerned about flooded drainage sys­tems can call the City of Swan on 9267 9267.

If you need emer­gency as­sis­tance, call the SES on 132 500.
