The CSIRO has been engaged to undertake a project to understand flood risk factors in the Northern Rivers region of NSW and identify flood mitigation options as part of a whole-of-catchment flood mitigation study.
You can read more about the project here https://www.csiro.au/NRRI
This study will inform the allocation of $150 million in funding from the Federal Government to support the NSW Government to fast-track resilience efforts in the region.
They are starting the community consultation across the Northern Rivers and will be holding a Kyogle session at the Kyogle Showgrounds, Kyogle – Monday 31 October.
At the sessions you can meet with the Project Team to review the preliminary results of their flood mitigation and resilience project prioritisation and discuss your views about what measures or criteria are important to you and your community and should be used to assess the identified flood mitigation project ideas and proposals.
If you are unable to register, walk-ins are welcomed.
If you are unable to attend in person, you can still participate by completing a questionnaire at https://fal.cn/3sOAE
