Some early questions have been raised by a member of the Yenda community, following the release of a flood mapping update by Griffith City Council.
The new flood map predicts how the area would be impacted by future floods, and was created following recent flood mitigation works by council.
The update appears to suggest the area would be significantly less impacted than it would have been before the works.

Council have suggested adopting the flood mapping update would reduce insurance premiums for Yenda residents.
The update will be put on public exhibition for 28 days and if no submissions are received it would be adopted.
Speaking to The Area News, Paul Rossetto of the Yenda Flood Victims Association and Yenda Progress Association said he plans to make a submission regarding the update.
Mr Rossetto said it appeared not enough had been done to address how a flood would impact North Yenda.
"If North Yenda becomes inundated, all of Yenda becomes inundated," Mr Rossetto said.
He said this is due to railway culverts, lower irrigation structures and the table drains of Burley Griffin road, acting "like rivers of water flowing into Yenda".
IN OTHER NEWS:
Mr Rossetto suggested he would be in support of a floodmap which reduces the cost of insurance for Yenda residents, but planned to raise these concerns with Griffith City Council should a public consultation take place.
The recent flood mitigation works conducted by Griffith City Council included a Mirrool Creek flood warning system, a floodgate at the East Mirrool Regulator site, and emergency breaching protocols.
The new floodmapping update was put together by Torrent Consulting.
The update will be placed on public exhibition for 28 days in the near future.
The Area News has requested information on when a public consultation with the Yenda community would take place and has not received a response from council at this stage.
