Deagon is an outer residential suburb of Brisbane, Australia. It is 16 kilometers north of the CBD. This was named after William Deagon who was the Mayor of Sandgate in 1882, 1883 and 1884. William Deagon was a popular identity of the area as several places and structures were named after him. Deagon Street, racecourse and railway station as well as the Deagon wetlands are the places that bear his name.
Deagon has a flat topography with one of its borders being Cabbage Tree Creek. The Creek’s catchment is largely urbanized but the Boondall Wetlands, which is separated from Deagon by the Creek, plays an important role in providing essential habitat for a range of birds and animals, which includes migratory birds, which make their way from the Arctic Circle. The Boondall Wetlands near Deagon have ecosystems that are fresh as well as areas that are salt water. The smaller reserves such as Brighton and Deagon Wetlands are fresh water only.
With the suburbs landscape, trees align the borders especially near houses and dwellings in the region. The suburb is a rich reservoir of high and aged trees. Underground duct also invites foreign objects to clog along its walls mainly coming from residential structures nearby. Tree roots can create enormous damage underground and these types can definitely contribute to the effective current of water from one destination to another. Tree roots are the primary cause of sewer line clogs, especially in older homes. These roots crawl its way into the openings of underground pipelines causing irritating obstructions in the water flow. In newer homes, common sources of clogging include foreign objects and debris, paper towels and even certain types of thicker toilet papers.
