AS STORM season nears, Memerambi residents are worried promises of drainage upgrades have not been fulfilled.
Residents said the South Burnett Regional Council had continuously failed to answer or act on concerns about drainage run off from the town's new housing development beside the Bunya Hwy.
Back in August, Mayor Wayne Kratzmann had said improvements were on the way.
"It is looking like it will be finished by the end of October and it certainly needs to be done by then when it is storm season," he told the South Burnett Times in August.
But three months later Memerambi resident Stephen Priestly, whose property backs onto the development, said the situation hadn't changed.
"I honestly feel as though we're being completely ignored, despite our very legitimate concerns," he said.
Before the Memerambi housing development, Mr Priestly said the neighbouring property had natural contours, allowing water to run off without affecting nearby homes.
But he said since the development, the council's current drainage system beside the Memerambi housing development was not able to support significant water run off from the development.
"The council let this development go ahead and they need to be responsible to put into place proper drainage and foresee where the water goes," Mr Priestly said.
The Memerambi resident said the constant worry of his property flooding was a burden.
"I'm outraged, but just hoping on a daily basis that we don't get flooded. It is making me lose sleep," he said.
