Council v government: Kilgariff to flood or not?

 

 

Is Kilgariff above or below the Q100 flood level? The Town Council says it is below. The NT Government says it is above. Q100 means the level of flooding likely to occur once in 100 years. The council has wiped its hands of it, yet it is a pet project of Chief Minister Adam Giles. Image: The Kilgariff land and St Mary's Creek running through it. The road on the left  is the South Stuart Highway. The road at the bottom is Colonel Rose Drive. The intersection is the south-western corner of the proposed suburb. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.
