La View of the very unsatisfactory nature of the provisions for disposing of the flood Waters in the Torbay grass Sucre agricultural area a much discussed vexed question and the de sire to induce the government to effect a Reform in the appliances erected some years ago the settlers in the District have enlisted the sympathies of the local governing and commercial bodies. To that end or. E. Pember recently placed the matter before the Albany chamber of Commerce which body received his communication and at once decided to carry it on to the Public works department. On the principle of the adage Union is strength they also placed the mat Ter before the town Council who at a recent meeting decided to join for Ces with the commercial body and voiced the opinion that representations be made to the government. To carry the matter further a tour of the area was arranged and on a recent Satur Day afternoon the mayor or. W. J. Davit. M. B. Downes or. W. H. Stevenson Aud the town Engineer or. By c. Poole representing the Council and messes. G. In tipping president and j. T. Mills the Cham Ber of Commerce journeyed out to Grasmere under the guidance of or. E. Pember. A Start was made shortly after the lunch hour but owing to the Short duration of Daylight at this time of year it was decided that a trip to the Inlet should be left Over until later on or at least when Opportunity could be found for making the excursion one for a whole Day. The journey was Maxie or horse vehicle and the roads were found to be passable. Arrived at Grasmere the party were first shown Over the potato growing Valley embracing messes. Pember North and Brighton s and other properties the whole of which were found to be under water from the recent heavy flood Rains. The water it was explained was unable to effect a getaway owing to the Sand bar at the Mouth of the Inlet the fundamental source of the contentious subject under review. This bar forms at intervals during the year and at one time was opened by the settlers As a drainage Board who when necessary set to work with scoops and cleared a Channel. With a View however to simplifying the task representations were made to the government to provide a scheme whereby the process could be managed by mechanical Means. In due time a system of flood Gates was erected but it is the position of these Gates that now Calls Forth comment. The Gates it is con tended instead of Clearing the flood water now retard its Progress and pre vent the scour of the bar. This of a ours causes a backing up of the water which then returns and floods the properties in its path. As an illustration of what was occurring the party were shown at or. Burvill s property a Drain which he had Cut also flood Gates erected by him on his own account. The effect caused was that the water was 2ft. 2in. Higher on the sea Side than on the land Side. At Ber s property the water had risen to the level of the floor of his barn in which was stocked a Quantity of Pota toes. To illustrate the result of what the opening of the bar meant a working Bee of 20 settlers with teams of horses and two scoops during ? the afternoon Cut a Channel through the bar and immediately after the party observed the water receding at a rapid rate. The remedy is thus. Obvious but the impracticability of it is such that to Render it effective the work would have to be per formed fortnightly. It was pointed out however that if the flood Gates were erected three Miles further up than their present position several streams would enter the main one below the Gates. This would set up a Good flow which would automatically scour the bar and re lease the water a work now being per formed by manual labor. The general Contention of the settlers is that some one has blundered by the erection of the Gates in their present position and the party were induced to admit after the illustrations Given that this be Lief bore some evidence of truth. With the evidence now before them Al though of an incomplete nature it was readily seen that there was ground for complaint but in order to Render their convictions Morie decisive and be fore passing final judgment it was Felt that another trip out must by made next time As stated to the Inlet. The party returned to town just on Tea time fully satisfied that a profitable and interesting afternoon had been spent. Comiotes results of competitions.
