Storm Tide Inundation Methodologies Study 

Council has finalised the Douglas Shire Council Storm Tide Inundation Methodologies Study Report.

The Study is to review and analyse different methodologies, identify a best practise model for the Shire’s coastal urban areas.  The preferred best practise model then calculated the minimum heights for the 1% AEP storm tide inundation for the year 2100 having regard to a 0.8m AHD sea level rise for urban coastal properties.  The achieves a higher level of certainty for the community.

An additional Property Tool is also being developed to complement the Storm Tide Inundation Methodologies Study Report and should be available prior to the end of June 2021.
