Flatland drainage outlet.

Mrsjock image. There are estimated to be around 4700 kilometers of rural drainage channels on the Swan Coastal Plain between southern Perth Metropolitan Area and the south boundary of the Peel District, in Waroona Shire. They feed storm- and swamp-water off the extensive flatlands between the Darling Scarp and the Indian Ocean, into the three major rivers in the district, the Serpentine, Murray and Harvey, and into the Peel/Harvey estuary system itself. The outflow pictured here is one, feeding into Peel Inlet at Robert Bay.

Hi Marion. I'm answering this at 6.30 AM and it's nice and cool outside. Quite a relief from the recent past. If only all our summer days were like this, mild and still. Thanks for the Lk. I hope all's well with you. Regards, Jock.

AnaMaria, thank you. Sadly, our estuarine environment here is suffering from the input of all those drains and run-off from farms and residential areas. Best wishes, Jock and Mrsjock.
