Macquarie River - Floodplain Management Study - Progress Report - Phase B

Phase A of the Floodplain Management Study was completed in late 2002 with the issue of the final report titled 'Macquarie Floodplain Management Study - Data Collection and Flood Study Phase A Report'. Work then commenced on Phase B, the floodplain management study phase, in consultation with Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Natural Resources (DIPNR) and the Macquarie River Floodplain Management Committee. The appropriate methodology to floodplain management, as described in some detail in the NSW Government publication, Floodplain Management Manual, 2001, includes evaluating management options for well-being of the floodplain as well as addressing both existing and future development.

The main elements of the work were to:

  • Carry out investigation to identify the appropriate Design flood(s) for the Macquarie River
  • Review and inspect in the field, all Hot Spots nominated in the Phase A Report, upstream of Warren
  • Obtain best available vegetation mapping and compare it with other existing mapping layers such as floodprone areas and location of Floodways
  • Present results of the above investigations at Floodplain Management Committee Meetings
  • Identify and outline other work required prior to preparation of the Floodplain Management Study and Plan
  • Prepare this Progress Report
