WIOA Talks – Extreme Events
Australians are already experiencing the effects of our damaged climate.
Future predictions indicate the likelihood of more heatwaves and more extreme storm events right across the country. Dealing with these extreme events will test the contingency plans of many organisations as they look to deliver their operational response.
Following an extreme storm event in June 2021 in Victoria, we have asked some WIOA Members to provide an insight into what happened and how it impacted their operations, and whether their existing contingency plans were adequate.
Peter Thomas – Yarra Valley Water

Tommie Conway – Melbourne Water
