The ARR 2016 Guidelines have now been officially finalised, providing engineers and consultants with the guidance and datasets necessary to produce more accurate and consistent flood studies and mapping across Australia, now and into the future.
Professional engineers and planners, particularly those with local government, are encouraged to make the most of this valuable resource. Consistent use of ARR will ensure that development does not occur in high risk areas and that infrastructure is appropriately designed.
ARR is also now publicly available online and free of charge. Visit arr.ga.gov.au to learn more about ARR 2016.
