Isaac Regional Council has been awarded a joint-government grant to help cover the cost of a flood study for Moranbah.
Federal Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry said the council will be provided with a $67,500 grant under the joint Commonwealth-State Government national partnership agreement on natural disaster resilience.
“The co-government contribution will cover 60% of the cost of the $112,000 flood study for Moranbah to identify ways to reduce future risks and support disaster management activities,” Ms Landry said.
“A flood study will provide information on the modelling of the behaviour of local waterways in the shire and their impact on Moranbah. This will help with future counter disaster plans”
