Forbes Mayor’s stark message to environmentalists as floodwaters rise
The town of Forbes in the NSW central west is bracing for floodwaters to reach levels not seen since 2016.
About 800 people are on stand-by to evacuate as the Lachlan River climbs.
Forbes Mayor Phyllis Miller told Ben Fordham she has a message for those opposing the raising of the Wyangala Dam.
“They need to come and have a look at this flood and the damage it’s going to do.
“If that dam wall was up we would not be having this conversation today.”
