Discussion Paper Available for comment

The SES has reviewed current flood warning levels for major Tasmanian rivers. After broad community consultation and research, changes are recommended to Minor, Moderate or Major flood warning heights or levels of service at some forecast locations.

A Discussion Paper is now available for community feedback. If you live along the Forth, Mersey, Meander, North Esk, South Esk, Macquarie, Ouse, Derwent, Jordan, or Huon rivers we encourage you to comment on any levels relevant to you.

View the discussion paper here. All comments must be received before 31 January 2022. They can be emailed to ses@ses.tas.gov.au or posted to State Emergency Services, Flood Warning Classification Review, GPO Box 308, Hobart Tas 7000.

Your information will help make the warning levels more relevant to your community.

If you have any questions call 03 6173 2700.
