Australia: Major Flood Protection for Mundubbera
Mundubbera’s flood resilience will be greatly improved with an earthen flood levee to be built through the Newman Government’s record investment in flood and disaster mitigation projects to protect Queensland communities.
Local Government, Community Recovery and Resilience Minister David Crisafulli said the 2013 floods were the largest on record for the North Burnett.
“The floods did a great deal of damage in Mundubbera, with an estimated 72 homes and 11 businesses hit by floodwaters with the damage bill topping $20 million,” Mr Crisafulli said.
“The new levee will include storm water drainage that will save an estimated 61 homes and 8 businesses and protect council’s sewerage infrastructure.”
