The amazing Howells Plains drainage system


The HEC ran this state ! ( no one else mattered ,and nothing was sacred. ) and now the truth !!

Ian, it was certainly the case that both the Lees and the Walters fought for their land in the 1960s when the dam was built. But in real terms they had no hope and the landowners knew that. That is probably why the bitterness lingered for a generation or so.

Quite an amazing story - certainly many millions wasted on Dam a couple of years ago and we have not heard the politicians talking about this!
