The Reality of Flood

We can’t always count on the rain to stop falling when we want it to. As North Queensland experienced record floods in February 2019, South East Queensland had just endured one of its driest January's on record.

Floods are a part of the climate in South East Queensland, and just as we plan for droughts, we have plans in place for when there are floods, too.

Find out more about flood mitigation by reading our fact sheet and checking out the video of how we operate two of our gated dams, Wivenhoe and Somerset.
