Floodplain Risk Management Plan

Wingham Floodplain Risk Management Plan

"Wingham is located approximately 45 kilometres upstream along the Manning River at the confluence of Cedar Party Creek. Due to the importance of the Manning River as a transport route, Wingham was established at the furthest point supply boats could reach up the river and therefore became the region's major port. A large portion of Wingham is elevated high above the floodplain; however, some portions, including Wingham peninsula, consist of undulating river terrace at a general elevation of less than 12 m AHD.

The overall objective of this Floodplain Risk Management Plan is to provide an appropriate mix of management measures that will collectively mitigate or manage the flood risks. The benefit of these management strategies, where possible, has been compared to the long term cost of flooding in Wingham to the wider community (the cost of doing nothing). Flood risks can be broadly categorised as existing risk, future risk and continuing risk."
