New Flood and Rainfall Gauges

Ipswich City Council has commenced a project to upgrade its flood and rainfall monitoring system across the city.

Council plans to install a number of rainfall only alert stations as well as stream and rainfall alert stations. City Infrastructure Committee Chair, Councillor Cheryl Bromage, said that the new locations included Ripley, Six Mile Creek, Goodna Creek, Grandchester, Rosewood, Redbank Plains, Thagoona and Washpool. "Installing these stream / rainfall alertstations will enhance Council's flood warning systems and provide Council with more information to draw upon during flooding situations," she said. Tenders have been called for the project.
