Brownhill Creek Culvert at Forestville under test

The recent rains have tested the Brownhill Creek Culvert Diversion at Forestville Reserve.

With up to 80 mm of rain forecast over the coming weekend I thought I would check the end of the Culvert Diversion at Forestville Reserve earlier this afternoon. As the picture below shows the water was only about 300 mm from the ceiling of the culvert.

Word has it, about 2 hours later with rain easing the water level had dropped 300 mm down to 600 mm from the ceiling of the culvert.

    Yes Don, it was certainly was a hell of a lot of water coming through the culvert. Good to see it working. The creek was flowing fiercely.
