ORC and the consultants would like to share the work they carried out to investigate the flooding and liquefaction hazards in Glenorchy Township. 

This will be via an online presentation where the consultants will present their findings and answer questions. This will be done via Zoom. The details are below.  

Please share this with your neighbours, friends and other contacts in Glenorchy or in the Head of the Lake area.


For those unable to attend, the information, including a recording of the meeting, will be made available the following day on the Head of the Lake project web page

We will have follow up sessions (as many as needed) with the community throughout this adaptation process, starting with a meeting in Glenorchy later in June. These will be opportunities to discuss findings, and let us know your feedback – we value your input.

Please initially mute your microphone if it isn’t already muted (you will see the little icons at the bottom of the zoom screen that show video and mic with a line through it that means they are off). Our facilitator will welcome you all, and give you the agenda, format and how we will answer questions, plus other tips on how to participate in the meeting.
