TOP THREE FLOOD OPTIONS
Following extensive community consultation, the Central Highlands Regional Council has chosen its three preferred flood mitigation strategies for Emerald. They include further investigation of Option C, which consists of four levees, Nogoa Railway Bridge box culverts and excavation, and a bypass channel. “I want people to understand that this is not a decision about carrying out works,” Mayor Peter Maguire says. “It is a policy decision that is setting the course for our next stage."
