Report recommends $23m flood leveeTuesday July 30, 2013 - 10:31 EST
Gympie Regional Council will receive a report tomorrow detailing options for flood mitigation.
The report by an engineering firm recommends building a CBD flood levee between the Bruce Highway and the Mary River south of Gympie.
The work would cost almost $23 million.
There are also recommendations for other roadworks at a cost of almost $4.5 million.
Mayor Ron Dyne says the levee would have prevented every flood since 1893.
He says construction will require state and Federal Government help.
