Georges Plains & Sofala Flood Scoping Study - Final Report: Georges Plains

The village of Georges Plains is located on Georges Plains Creek, which has a catchment area of just under 70 square kilometres and is a tributary of Queen Charlottes Vale Creek (catchment area approximately 280 square kilometres). The confluence of the two Creeks is located approximately 1.5 km downstream of the village. Georges Plains has been affected by several floods in the past, most recently in 1998. The village was significantly affected in the 1990 flood which resulted in inundation of several properties. Only limited flooding occurred at the village during the 1986 flood that severely affected Bathurst.

Evans Shire Council has commissioned SMEC to prepare a Flood Scoping Study for the villages of Georges Plains and Sofala. The objective of the Study is to undertake a preliminary investigation of the flood issues in the two villages to allow Evans Shire Council to determine whether more detailed studies are required to satisfy the principles and guidelines in the NSW Flood Prone Land Policy and the Floodplain Management Manual. This report presents the outcomes of the investigation of flooding at Georges Plains. This report contains an outline of the modelling methodology and a summary of modelling results and conclusions.
