Meanwhile here in SE Melbourne we are spending, I think, $4m. on digging
big holes in Elsternwick Park and the neighbouring golf course to hold
water when the Elster Creek cannot cope with "20 year floods".  These
are occurring more often than that because of the amount of concrete
poured over the earth upstream. 

The holes will be on the site of an old swamp which was drained and
filled in (at a cost of $$4m? in present day money) to enhance the
amenities... The new wetland will include rushes, reeds etc. and an
island to encourage wildlife !
