Chairman’s Forward
Completion of the South Para Reservoir modifications within budget and the earlier
undertaking on the North Para, thoughts turn to the third phase of the original program – the
lower Gawler River.
However, new technology on flooding predictions and the failure of the work so far
completed to arrest the ‘one in a hundred’ threat, has led to further consideration of the
feasibility of another flood control dam on the North Para should a site be available and such
a project being cost effective.
In the meantime, the Councils associated with the lower reaches of the Gawler River
continue to address local issues relative to the extension of safe urban development.
