Blayney Flood Study

The Town of Blayney is located in the Central West region of New South Wales approximately 240km west of Sydney in the Blayney Shire Council area. Blayney Township (population 3,355 at the 2011 census) is the urban centre of Blayney Shire Council and provides the administrative, commercial, retail and industrial centre for the Shire. Blayney is strategically located on the junction of the Mid-Western Highway and the road between Orange and Goulburn. It is also located on the intersection of the Main Western Railway and the Blayney – Demondrille Railway, which provides a link between the Western and Southern lines and direct rail access into Melbourne.

The objective of this Flood Study is to define the riverine flood behaviour of the Belubula River and Abattoir Creek as well as the overland flood behaviour in Blayney and their possible combined effects of the town area of Blayney. The study produces information on flood levels, velocities and flows for a full range of riverine and overland flood events under existing catchment conditions. These results will enable Council to progress to the next phases in the floodplain risk management process, by identifying the possible management options within the Floodplain Risk Management Study and development of a draft Risk Management Plan (the Plan) for Council’s consideration.
