HURSTVILLE Council is about to fix the stormwater channel in Clarke Street, Peakhurst.
In November last year the channel running at the back of several properties attracted Hurstville Council’s attention because of its tendency to flood and erode the banks.
The council resolved to fix the problem at a recent meeting.
It will employ an engineering company whose analysis and design work will cost about $13,240, to be paid for from the Georges River Drainage Plan (which has a balance of $215,497).
Part of Hurstville’s old drainage system, the channel’s embankments were stabilised about 25 years ago with shotcrete and retaining walls, but sections of shotcrete have since eroded.
Do you think there is a problem with drainage in the area?
