Alarming report on Brisbane River risks covered up

Posted: January 17, 2011 in The Saga Continues...

Seems there is more to the flood story in Brisbane than meets the eye.

The Australian reports that a flood study in 1999 made alarming findings that major flooding could occur in areas built up since the 1974 floods, and made predictions that future flooding would be one to two meters higher than anticipated in the town’s plan.

It is alleged that the report was covered up by State and Local governments more interested in seeing development in low lying areas.
