There have been fortnightly high tides since the levee breach of May 9th including those above 2.7m (projected) from June 20th to 23rd. Around 5pm, and just before high tide on Thursday 23rd, these photos illustrate the widespread flooding of the Reserve in a high tide event.
We need to consider both the extent and recurrence of flooding and BOM tide charts indicate fewer tides above 2.7m in July and then reduced high tide levels for some months.
High tides, and the inundation of the Reserve, have implications for existing vegetation, pathways, power infrastructure and neighbouring sites.
Community members and business stakeholders are keen to engage with government to develop plans for the future of Mutton Cove.
