A class action was filed on 8 July 2014 seeking compensation for financial loss or damage caused by the negligent operation of Wivenhoe and Somerset dams in the lead up to and during the January 2011 flood. The class action alleges that the negligence of the dam operators contributed significantly to the downstream flooding experienced in Brisbane, Ipswich and surrounding areas.
