Six months after the February floods devastated parts of Brisbane, some property owners have been left frustrated by remaining debris.
Resident Anita Heiss from West End voiced her concerns on social media, claiming neither Brisbane City Council or Maritime Services had taken responsibility for a pontoon still in front of her apartment block.
Maritime Safety Queensland general manager Kell Dillion said some instances will be up to individual property owners.
“Anything above the high-water mark or on the land itself is generally the responsibility of the land owner if it’s on private land,” he said.
“If anyone has any debris that’s washed up on their property please call Maritime Safety Queensland.”
At one Indooroopilly golf club, a boat has been stuck in the trees since February and a pontoon is on the green on the third hole, more than 100 metres from the river.
The pontoon weighs nine tonnes and will require a crane to relocate.
Some members believe the debris adds atmosphere to the venue.
“Looks like a really good bar to me,” club member Paul Laxon joked.
“Absolutely, I think it looks good.”
The floods caused mass destruction to infrastructure along the Brisbane River triggering a mammoth clean up effort.
Thirteen of Brisbane’s 21 CityCat terminals are now back online after being damaged.
“The next terminals to enter service will be Sydney Street, New farm and Maritime Museum,” Cr Ryan Murphy said.
