bruce in USA they have a dam that has a overflow valve that redirects water to another river system via a tunnel when the dam reaches a certain height some where I have the specs on it very interesting same as what Bradfield said in the 30s neil
Not all are so great.
Parramatta river, flood's because the Lennox bridge is not big enough.
They Brainy sods spent $millions to Pipe the excess water around the bridge.
Why didn't they just make it Deeper, after all it's the volume that has to pass through the Lennox bridge.
Three times the hight should be plenty.
How much was the water worth that flooded out of qld? I bet it was billions worth, and it would have flushed the Darling. I sure would like to spend most of our military money on things like the Bradfield scheme.
AND I'm hoping that the Diamantina puts enough into the Warburton to get to Lake Eyre. I'll fly up in the Jabiru to see it if that happens.
bruce better start that flight plane its should be past Birdsville now
the trouble with the experts they tell me that I aint qualified to suggest that a railway line needs to have a bridge length 200mtrs every five ks so as when the water does fall can escape on some parts of that line
the experts failed once again on the line to mt isa some have no idea off the volume off water up the top end
have seen water over the road 2 feet deep for close on thirty ks in many places neil
So salty you can't sink in it when you try to swim. Unless you land on it and then you are in more than the salt.. Those salt lakes are so desolate, hot and humid and not good for anything made of metal. Nev
Agreed ! .
So don't take the old tinnie, ( like in one volcanic movie), the smaller the better, The club commodore uses "Hobie-Cats", Iv'e seen (from the air) kayaks/canoes & a rubber ducky.
They look so serine floating on that glass lake.
It's pity that the area is unusable, Even tho the Yabbies from the feeder creeks are delicious.
Has any one put a line in at the "DigTree", It looks promising.?
