Grantham – Safe Above the Floods

In January 2011, the small town of Grantham, Australia, saw some of the worst floods in the nation’s history. Nineteen people were killed, many more were injured, and over 120 houses were damaged. As a result, the regional council decided to move the people out of danger by reestablishing a new Grantham on higher ground. The Strengthening Grantham project became the first in Australian history to move an entire town from one location to another.
