"The urgent plan  to restore our catchment  is the only way to reduce flood heights in Lismore."

                                                                                                                              John Corkill

           

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.
