Queensland Floods

24 October 2013 - The Queensland government has appointed an Aurecon led consortium to conduct an AUD1.16 million study to review the expected magnitude and frequency of flood flows for the Brisbane River catchment.

“We welcome the recent announcement by the Minister for Natural Resources and Mines, the Hon. Andrew Cripps MP,” said Aurecon Project Director Chris Russell.

 Aurecon has partnered with Royal HaskoningDHV, Hydrobiology, Deltares and Don Carroll Project Management for the study, which will help create new systems that can better handle future floods.

“We have cemented a strong position in this area having been involved in many flood assessments in Queensland since the 2010/2011 floods, which caused widespread damage and destruction to communities across the state,” added Chris.
