KOO-WEE-RUP DRAINAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Dandenong Advertiser and Cranbourne, Berwick and Oakleigh Advocate — 30 April 1914
KOO-WVEE.RUP DRAINAGE. A deputation of Koo wee-rup resi dents recently interviewed Mr Watt, to protest against the Ministry's scheme for the better drainage of the Koo-wee-rup Swamp, on the ground that it was not sufficiently liberal, and would be ineffective. The whole qtestion was again referred to the. Water Commission. The commis sioners suggested certain amend ments, and these came before the Cabinet for consideration. It was de cided to amend thie State contri bution. When a scheme estimated to cost 25,00ooo was put forward, the Ministry's contribution was set down at /7,ooo000. In view of the fact that a fuller scheme, to cost 55,000o has now been approved, the Cabinet has resolved to raise its contribution pro portionately, it also guaranteed a maximum rate fromn 6d. to 2/ over the whole areas. The scheme, as amended, will be submitted to the be landholders for their opinion.
