"The urgent plan to restore our catchment is the only way to reduce flood heights in Lismore."
John Corkill was dismayed when he heard that the Nationals response to the devastating and expensive Lismore floods is to increase height of the existing flood levees that hold water out of the business district of central Lismore.
The levee was called a lemon when it was first built and a lemon it has proved to be.
Dr Corkill knows that money and planning would be better spent on planting and regenerating trees in the catchment of the entire flood area to reduce flood heights in Lismore.
