On the beach

High winds and a king tide yesterday saw the sea come right up to the sea wall at Princes St, near the London Hotel.
A Melbourne Water drain exits onto this section of beach. Melbourne Water have prepared a plan for the drain to exit alongside the path next to the truck park. The plan is not funded at this stage. Melbourne Water has indicated that dealing with flooding risk is a higher order priority than the aesthetic considerations of drains exiting on beaches.
