  1. i have a question. I grew up in Maud St Mayfield West in the 50’s and 60’s I was wondering was there anything documented about the flash flooding that occured on a regular basis when we had heavy rain back then.? My parents home was always flooded at the bottom end of Maud St and when Commonwealth Steel built the concrete wall things only got worse. 1954, 55,58 and I remember also 1963,and 67 plus once I left home the waters came up again in 1973. From what I remember the waters came from the run-off from the Abatoir paddocks.
