Tenterfield Shire Council has been upgrading the Tenterfield flood warning system, with financial assistance from the NSW Government through the Office of Environment and Heritage Floodplain Management Program.
Council are in the final stages of the upgrade, and part of this will involve the testing of the new sirens. This testing is scheduled to occur during the week of the 18th January 2021. Council would like to advise residents that no action needs to be taken on their behalf.
Once the system is operational, Council, in conjunction with the SES, will be running some informational sessions on what to do if you hear the sirens, along with a general flood awareness campaign.
Council are also excited to inform residents that, as part of this project, the rainfall and creek / dam level information will be made available to the community. Further information on how to access this data will be made available when the system is operational.
