2017 Floodplain Management Australia National Conference

  • This event has passed.

The conference will mark the tenth anniversary of the “Pasha Bulker” storm, and extensive flooding which occurred in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley. The bulk cargo ship “Pasha Bulker” made global headlines after running aground on Newcastle Beach during the wild storm, and features in the 2017 Conference logo. The conference will feature improvements to flood risk management since 2007, inspections of the Hunter Valley Flood Mitigation Scheme and the Newcastle Flash Flood Alert Service, which is the first of its kind in New South Wales.
