Yenda Flood Protection Scheme on the Way

Federal Member for Farrer, Sussan Ley, yesterday joined with Griffith City Mayor, John Dal Broi, to inspect the site for $1.2 million in works to help protect the Yenda community from future major flooding events.

Funded as part of a Commonwealth/NSW National Partnership Agreement on National Disaster Resilience, Griffith City will receive funding for two projects to help with local flood mitigation.

NSW Member for Murray, Austin Evans, said: “The project will provide additional discharge capacity to move and manage floodwaters, as well as providing relief for upstream farmers from damage to their land and crops.”

Welcoming the funding, Murrumbidgee Irrigation (MI) CEO, Brett Jones, said: “The flood management works at the Regulator would enable MI to support the Council during flood events and enable a quicker return to normal operations.”

Ms Ley also announced $120,000 in funding for upgrade design work on Hanwood’s pump and levee storm water system to prevent water from flowing back and flooding into the village. Griffith City Council will contribute a further third of the total project cost ($180,000).
