Tamworth NSW experiences frequent flooding, especially in the industrial area of Taminda. The flood in November 2000 provided an opportunity to estimate the cost savings that would have occurred in Taminda if there had been a levee to protect the area. As part of a wider study by the Bureau of Transport Economics to investigate the benefits of flood mitigation, the effectiveness of the central business district (CBD) levee in preventing flood damage was also part of this study.
