Gympie is one of the most flood prone towns in southeast Queensland, with moderate and major flooding impacting the region every 10 years since records began in 1870, with the second largest flood event on record in the Mary River impacting the Gympie CBD and region in February 2022.
Council have embarked on a process to gain a better understanding of flood risk, the real cost of flooding to the community, and to identify options and opportunities to manage flood risk - both now and into the future.
The purpose of this Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan project is to identify potential options to manage the flood risk across the region. The primary objectives of this project are to:
Throughout the project the community will play an important role in shaping how future floods are planned for and managed.
You can have your say on flood risk management by filling out the survey. This survey will allow council better understand our communities knowledge on flooding, how flooding has affected you, and your preferences on how flood risks are managed. The survey takes approximately 5 minutes to complete. Thank you for having your say.
