SunWater a no-show at Biloela community meeting

SUNWATER will not attend a public meeting in Biloela.

Former councillor Rosemary Munroe has organised the meeting at the civic centre tonight for locals to discuss flooding in the Callide Valley during Cyclone Marcia.

"We have a lot of people who would like to hear from (SunWater)," she said.

"We particularly want to look for the future on the sudden release of the dam. It's not a witch hunt. We just don't want this to happen again."

Inspector-General Iain MacKenzie, attending on behalf of the Queensland Government, said he was looking at facts but the views of locals would be the most important part of his review.

"I can't promise creeks and rivers will never flood again but I will be looking at the operation of the dam and the timeliness of the warnings."
