Seqwater flood damages ruling

9th September 2021

The ruling in favour of Seqwater in relation to flood damages is devastating for the 2011 flood victims who have had to fight so hard for so long.

This cruel appeal by Seqwater leaves the victims without half the compensation they are owed.

I foreshadowed this in a speech to Parliament in March this year when it was revealed Seqwater had not included any liability in their financial statements for the $440 million they owed in damages.

The Premier had the power to direct Seqwater not to undertake this appeal, and now we have an awful and confusing situation for the flood victims.

These flood victims deserve better from this Government.
