    Southland's regional council has applied for almost 18 million dollars' worth of upgrades to its flood protection infrastructure,

    Southland's regional council has applied for almost 18 million dollars' worth of upgrades to its flood protection infrastructure,


    Environment Southland's hoping to get the funding under the Government's "shovel-ready" infrastructure initiative.

    Chief executive Rob Phillips says the investment would improve resilience to floods - Southland's highest risk natural hazard - and the threat of climate change.

    He says stopbanks proved their worth in the February floods in Gore, Mataura and Wyndham.
