A sensational development with the Queensland Floods Commission of Inquiry may emerge in the next 24 hours involving the accuracy and reliability of flood modelling on the Brisbane River.

Serious questions are also likely to be raised regarding the adequacy of the professional qualifications of the Seqwater dam engineers.

It will be difficult for the Inquiry to properly finalise its task without scheduling further hearings to fully test the new claims. 

The proposed release date of the final report of Friday 16 March 2012 - just 8 days before the state election - may be quite problematical.
