CLEANUP: Contractors get to work on Canada St after flooding left if covered in mud and silt.

Canada St got a cleanup by Timaru District Council contractors yesterday after heavy rain caused the street to flood on Monday.

A street sweeper and waterblaster cleared the street and footpaths of debris of mud and silt left behind by the floodwaters.

Council district services group manager Ashley Harper said this was standard practice after weather events and occurred at other sites in the Timaru urban area.
