Latrobe Council turns to Entura for flood management study

23 July 2017

Specialist power and water consulting firm Entura has been engaged by Latrobe Council to assess flood management options for the historic town.

Situated on the north-west coast of Tasmania, Latrobe was significantly affected by flooding from the Mersey River and Kings Creek in June 2016. The devastating event led to significant property damage and the loss of one life.

Entura will undertake a study to examine the potential for a levee to protect the town from Mersey River flooding and the enhancement or addition of detention storage in Kings Creek.

Ends.
