Boorowa Flood Study

The study objective was to define the nature of both main stream flooding and major overland flow at Boorowa for flood frequencies ranging between 20 and 0.2 per cent Annual Exceedance Probability (AEP), as well as for the Probable Maximum Flood (PMF). The indicative extent of land which is affected by both main stream flooding and major overland flow at Boorowa.

The Flood Study is the source of present day flooding conditions and will be used as the basis for preparing the future Floodplain Risk Management Study and Draft Plan (FRMS&DP) for Boorowa.

The FRMS&DP will assess the economic impact of flooding on existing urban development, review options for flood mitigation and prepare a Plan of works and measures for managing the present and future flood risk in the town.
