Floodplain Risk Management Plan

Lower Murrumbidgee Floodplain - Natural Resource Management Plan

This NRM Plan is the culmination of previous draft plans released by the Murrumbidgee CMA over a period of 12 months. The development of the plan has provided opportunities for input from the local landholders and land managers through the encouragement of written feedback on the two draft reports, as well as face-to-face feedback through landholder interviews and a series of workshops. Issues raised from the consultation process have provided the Murrumbidgee CMA with an insight into the current on-ground status of the natural resources as well as highlighting the key natural resource management issues that are important to local stakeholders.

The key aims for developing a NRM Plan for the lower Murrumbidgee floodplain are set out below;

  • Provide a foundation on which projects that contribute to the effective and viable functioning of the lower Murrumbidgee floodplain can be built.
  • Collate all information readily available on the area's natural resources
  • Identify where knowledge is lacking to the extent that it prevents effective management of the area and identify areas where further research, monitoring and studies are required.
  • Assist in prioritising investment to promote a resilient Lower Murrumbidgee landscape.
  • Assist in effectively engaging the local Lower Murrumbidgee community through opportunities for input and feedback.
  • Inform the development of the WMP for the lower Murrumbidgee floodplain and the Basin Plan.
  • Provide a Plan that adopts adaptive management regimes in order to deliver the greatest NRM outcomes.

The NRM Plan has separated the lower Murrumbidgee floodplain into five separate management areas in recognition of different land use, vegetation and watering regimes. The Plan addresses each area individually, as well as addressing issues that are relevant to the floodplain as a whole.
