The 'island' that used to be in the middle was removed a few months ago by SDC. Now the waters flow freely.

The thing in the middle is a big tree trunk, as big as a car, floating downstream like a feather.
There was some flooding noted at Lieman Street near the Otautau Main Road but not too bad. More like a big puddle.
