We live in the major catchment area for Somerset Dam.
One of the dams that supplies South -East Queensland with water.
Somerset & Wivenhoe Dams were built to stop Brisbane's major flooding & of course for water
storage/usage. Brisbane of course can still flood but from local water run off.

The water from Somerset is let down into Wivenhoe, that then supplies

Brisbane with it's water.

"Stanley River"

Stanley River flows into Somerset.

Wouldn't you hate to be "Ted" at the moment,

with all his livelihood under water

This is "Teds house usually surrounded by a sea of green turf,

now surrounded by a sea of water.
