The Richmond and Wilsons Valley flood warning improvement project aims to support the implementation of improvements to the flood warning network on a priority basis.
The project involves reviewing the existing flood warning services and flood warning improvement recommendations from various existing studies to identify potential improvements to the service. The intended outcome of this review is to make recommendations and expedite priority improvements to the current flood warning service. This may involve upgrades to existing and new gauges and flood warning service locations. It will also support community awareness of any changes to the flood warning service and their need to understand and respond to changed warnings.
The project is being led by NSW Department Planning and Environment – Environment and Heritage Group in consultation with the Bureau of Meteorology, NSW State Emergency Service, and the relevant local councils within the study area.
Initial draft recommendations have been developed for improvements to the flood warning network in the valley and can be found at this link, along with project details.
Feedback, questions and suggestions are essential – please follow this link to provide details before Friday 21 November 2023.
