Murrayville locals are less than impressed with the towns storm water drainage after the town was drenched with 30mm of rain in half an hour.

While the rainfall wasn't huge, it was enough to stretch the existing, or nonexisting, infrastructure to the limit, threatening the local pub and shops with inundation. The water also created a few dramas for vehicle owners that were parked in the street at the time.

A local spokesperson today urged Mildura Rural City Council to "hurry up and get on with the job" of building the proposed upgraded system that will feed into a wetland.
