The Minister for Western Sydney assures the Warragamba Dam will be raised by 14 metres after it spilled over at the weekend.

Minister for Western Sydney Stuart Ayers told Ben Fordham a raised dam would have slowed the flooding that has occurred.

“It’s an extensive piece of work, it will take a number of years to do it.

“We’re pursuing this because we know it’s the right thing to do.”

“We’re probably going to have to learn how to manage water better,” he told Ray Hadley.

“More dams, but in the right catchments, would be great but right now let’s just keep everyone safe.”
