NUMURKAH FLOODPLAIN MANAGEMENT STRATEGY AND PLAN – LETTER TO THE EDITOR
I write in regard to the Numurkah Floodplain Management Study and Plan.
I have received and read the Summary Report of the Study and Plan and I congratulate the Numurkah community on the hours of work they have done to arrive at its conclusion.
As the Water Minister in the government that funded the flood study arising after the 2012 floods and having visited the area a number of times during the flood I know first-hand the damage and stress these floods caused.
The Liberal National Party is committed to continuing the process of implementing flood studies in partnership with the Commonwealth and relevant Local Government area.
It is important that these works be done before the next flood event.
Leader of the Nationals
