Flood event in Gwydir Valley

Media release | 17 December 2020

There are reports of heavy rain in the Gwydir region which could lead to overland flows.

Due to the disallowance of the government’s regulation amendment, which temporarily exempted certain floodplain works from licencing requirements, any landholder considering floodplain harvesting during this event may wish to seek their own legal counsel.
