Boree Creek Flood Study

Boree Creek is located within Federation Council, approximately 39km northeast of Urana and 16km northwest of Lockhart. It has a declining population of 199 people (2016 census) and is located adjacent to Boree Creek. The creek drains a catchment area of approximately 141km2 to the town, flowing in a south-westerly direction along the southern edge of the village. The creek then continues towards Lake Cullivel and is then joined by Brookong Creek before flowing into Urangeline Creek, which discharges into Lake Urana.

The primary objective of the flood study for Boree Creek is to define the nature and extent of flood behaviour in and adjacent to Boree Creek village. The study will produce information on flood levels, velocities, flows, hydraulic categories and provisional hazard categories for 20%, 10%, 5%, 2%, 1%, 0.5%, 0.2% annual exceedance probability (AEP) events and the probable maximum flood (PMF) event.
