Mangrove Creek holding tank loses water
A Mangrove Creek holding tank at Pembertons Hill Rd burst on August 2 and lost water.
Some properties were reportedly in the path of potential water flow.
Local resident Ms Trelise McBain said she had previously been told by council that the dam would not overflow.
"When I contacted the council about the strong possibility of the dam overflowing with the recent east coast low, I was told emphatically that it wouldn't - in writing, by the council, three days prior to it overflowing.
"I was also told there was a warning disaster plan to advise residents downstream if it did and there wasn't.
"The overflow which has never happened before caused major excess flooding and velocity downstream."
Ms McBain said the council had not consulted residents and the dam that had no ability to reduce capacity safely.
