Flood study

Grafton & Lower Clarence Floodplain Risk Management Plan

The study area essentially covers the Lower Clarence River floodplain downstream of Junction Hill, except those areas that are covered by separate floodplain management studies that are being undertaken by others concurrently. Specifically, the study area includes:

  • Flood-prone areas of Grafton and South Grafton formerly administered by Grafton City Council, excluding Alipou Creek and Musk Valley Creek
  • Flood-prone areas of the Lower Clarence River formerly administered by Maclean Shire Council, from Brushgrove to Palmers Island, including Maclean, and excluding Iluka and Yamba
  • Flood-prone areas along the Clarence and Coldstream Rivers, in areas formerly administered by Copmanhurst and Pristine Waters Shires, largely situated between Grafton and Brushgrove, but excluding Ulmarra

The Plan recommends a range of measures to manage the flood risk at Grafton and throughout the Lower Clarence Valley.
