Here's a letter to the editor, published on 09 November 2016 ...

It was interesting to read (EC Messenger, 'Bushfire threat to residents', 26 Oct) that anti-dam activist Ron Bellchambers wants urgent repair to an upper Brownhill Creek bridge damaged by recent flooding. The damage means that heavy CFS trucks can't get through to fight fires. May I suggest that had Ron supported the recommended proposal for a dam he would not now have his dilemma (in his locality).
It's not too late to review what is the best engineering solution to remediate flooding.
