The NSW Government released the Hawkesbury-Nepean Flood Risk Management Strategy in May 2017, which recommended raising the Warragamba Dam by approximately 14 metres. As the owner and operator of the dam, WaterNSW has been consulting widely on the costs and benefits of the flood mitigation works.

An Environmental Impact Statement is expected by mid-2019, and subject to planning approvals, a business case will follow in 2020. Construction is then expected to be finished by 2024. 

The project is included under the broader Hawkesbury-Nepean Valley flood management initiative, which Infrastructure Australia identifies as a Priority Initiative on its Infrastructure Priority List
