Gauging flood levels
RIVER gauging stations may be installed in Texas and Goondiwindi to provide accurate flood information to the towns.
Member for Southern Downs Lawrence Springborg supported Mingoola Progress Association's call for their installation and said the gauges were vital pieces of equipment.
"If additional river gauging systems were installed, landholders and the communities of Texas and Goondiwindi would have vital information four to five hours earlier," Mr Springborg said.
He said he had written to the Bureau of Meteorology and both the Southern Downs and Goondiwindi Regional Councils requesting their support for the extra stations.
