Floodplain Risk Management Plan

Bungendore Floodplain Risk Management Plan

Bungendore is located on the banks of Turallo and Halfway Creeks which are tributaries that drain to the southern shoreline of Lake George to the north. The village is situated about 40 kilometres north-east of Canberra near the New South Wales / Australian Capital Territory border.

The primary objective of the Government’s Flood Prone Land Policy is to reduce the impact of flooding on individual owners and occupiers of flood prone land, and to reduce private and public losses caused by flooding. In this regard, the Policy recognises:

  • that flood prone land is a valuable resource that should not be sterilised by unnecessarily precluding its development; and,
  • that if all applications for development on flood prone land are assessed according to rigid and prescriptive criteria, some proposals may be unjustifiably disallowed or restricted, and equally, quite inappropriate proposals could be approved (NSW Government, 2005).

The plan summarises the proposed mitigation options for managing flood risk around Bungendore. The proposed options include the extension of existing a levee, installation of overflow channels and construction of contour banks.
