Yorke Peninsula Council (Council) has initiated Coastal Protection Structures and Adaptation Projects for higher risk townships of Gulf St Vincent. This project is supported with funding from the Coast Protection Board. It is in response to previous coastal events.
The conditions of Gulf St Vincent see some townships vulnerable to seawater flooding during high tides and storm surges. Over time the seawater flood risk will also increase with sea level rise.
Council has previously undertaken seawater flood studies, investigating the potential extent of seawater flooding and identifying potential future adaptation options to manage seawater flood risk. Areas have been identified that require flood protection to prevent inundation of roads, other assets, and properties.
Council will be holding a series of community information sessions (to attend in person or via Microsoft Teams) on:
- Friday 28th July, 1.30pm, Warooka Town Hall
- Thursday 10th August, 11.00am, Coobowie Community Hall
- Thursday 10th August, 2.30pm Pine Point Community Hall
- Friday 11th August, 11.00am, James Well Community Centre
- Friday 11th August, 2.00pm, Port Clinton Community Hall
