The Buloke Shire suffered a period of prolonged drought, followed by severe flooding.
Succeeding investigations into the shire’s flood mitigation infrastructure, AWMA were engaged to develop a flood protection barrier for the township of Donald.
In the Buloke Shire, as in most rural communities, roads and access are critical. At one stage in the days immediately following the Donald flood events, flood waters and flood damage resulted in over 65 roads in the municipality being closed.
The FloodFree Demountable Barrier manufactured by AWMA, allows fast and effective isolation (and re-opening) of road crossings, levee openings and access points.
All AWMA FloodFree Barriers are custom designed to suit site specifications including road camber, kerbing, adjoining infrastructure and flood characteristics.
