Edward & Wakool Rivers Floodplain Management Strategy - Noorong Road to Wakool Murray Junction

The strategy is the fourth (Stage IV) in a series of reports dealing with floodplain management issues on the Central Murray floodplain. The Stage IV area covers the downstream part of this floodplain. It includes the floodplain of Merran Creek and the lower Edward and Wakool Rivers.

The strategy has the following objectives:

  • to provide floodways with adequate capacity for the orderly passage of floodwaters;
  • to maintain and restore, as far as practicable, the natural pattern of flooding;
  • to enable flood protection for agricultural land and other property;
  • to enable flooding to support the floodplain environment, particularly flood-dependent ecosystems;
  • to implement floodplain management consistent with the planning principles of Murray Regional Environmental Plan No 2 (Murray REP2);
  • to implement floodplain management
