National Emergency Management Agency for their Northern Rivers Resilience Initiative

The 2022 East Coast floods was Australia’s most expensive natural disaster recorded in history. Costing more than $5.65billion and leaving numerous communities displaced, the impact is still felt today. A $11.4million flood mitigation survey, headed by CSIRO, is an integral part of a bigger program funded by the Australian Government – The Northern Rivers Resilience Initiative.

As part of this initiative, Woolpert conducted bathymetric survey of the Richmond and Tweed catchments, a nominal 800 linear km of riverways in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, to enable development of a hydrodynamic model to mitigate future disasters and rebuild broken communities.
