Flood and Stormwater Strategy

Flooding presents a significant risk to communities across our Shire. Flooding causes threats to human health, damage to properties, detrimental consequences to our natural environment, and social harm. Although flooding is a natural phenomenon, the probability of extreme events can be exacerbated by human influences such as climate change, urbanisation, the creation of impermeable surfaces, and drainage design. This Strategy proposes the use and development of various tools to quantify these risks to identify flood mitigation projects which resolve flooding and reduce the vulnerability of our communities.
