TO PARENTS within the River Hills Estate, Nunile.
Recently while planting trees with Dad on his block in the River Hills Estate, we made a disturbing discovery.Read more
Our three-year-old daughter was exploring as kids do and easily opened the cover to the stormwater drain and was peering inside.
Thankfully I was close to her.
Many of the blocks have two drains which are not secure and no internal grate is fitted.
The deep drains are easily accessible and large enough for a small child to fall into.
I wrote to and visited the shire and have been assured this issue is being followed up urgently with the developer to repair.
In the meantime, I want to make sure all residents are aware of the situation so those with small children can cover the grates temporarily.
I’m hopeful this issue will be resolved quickly.
As at August 26, it seems that the drains to the front of the blocks have been secured by the shire.
Many thanks to the shire employees who have organised this.
The rear drains are still unsecured for now.
