Burnett Catchment Flood Resilience Strategy

A pilot project for Resilient Queensland

The QRA , local governments and state agencies are working together on a long-term plan to manage the impact of future floods and enhance community safety and resilience in the Burnett River Catchment.

The Burnett Catchment Flood Resilience Strategy was successfully completed in May 2018 to provide a consistent and coordinated approach to managing flood risk across the four local councils located within the catchment.

The project commenced in October 2017 and is was successfully completed in May 2018. Implementation of the strategy will now be overseen by the Wide Bay Burnett Regional Organisation of Councils.

The success of the Burnett pilot project has led to the identification of further regional resilience strategies to be developed in 2018 and 2019 as part of Resilient Queensland.
