Welcome ACT Government
1st April 2016
There are a number of ACT Government agencies that deal directly with flood risk management. Due to being a planned city, the ACT does not experience riverine flooding as such, but does have a high risk of flash flooding.
Flooding in the ACT has been rated moderate and high on the Territory Wide Risk Assessment Report. The ACT Government Territory and Municipal Services Directorate, the Economic Planning Directorate and Justice and Community Safety Directorate collaborate to ensure the risk of flood is minimised in the ACT and region.
Additionally, the ACTSES works closely with the NSW SES on planning for flood related situations in the ACT region and in particular areas which border NSW and ACT.
