Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan

Conargo - Floodplain Management Study & Plan - Flood Data Assessment Study December 2008

Conargo Council intends to prepare a Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan for the village of Conargo. The overall objectives of the Floodplain Risk Management Study will be to assess the impacts of flooding, review existing Council policies as they relate to development of land in flood liable areas bordering the Billabong Creek, consider options for management of flood affected land and to develop a Plan (FRMP) which:

  • Proposes modifications to existing Council policies to ensure that the development of flood affected land is undertaken so as to be compatible with the flood hazard and risk.
  • Proposes Flood Planning Levels for the various Land Uses in the Floodplain.
  • Sets out the recommended program of works and measures aimed at reducing over time, the social environmental and economic impacts of flooding.
  • Provides a program for implementation of the proposed works and measures. This present Study is a Flood Data Assessment Study which collects and collates flood data and identifies “gaps”, reviews flooding mechanisms, undertakes Community Consultation and a preliminary assessment of potential floodplain management measures. The Study provides basic information for the future Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan.
