Floodplain Risk Management Study

Moomin Creek Floodplain Management Study

This floodplain management study is concerned with the floodplain of Moomin Creek. The FMP area stretches approximately 80 km along Moomin Creek from upstream of the Gurley Creek/Moomin Creek confluence to upstream of the Mallowa Creek/Moomin Creek confluence. It covers an area of approximately 1200 square kilometres, with the centroid of the area approximately 70 km south west of Moree.

Implementation of the Moomin Creek FMP will provide the community with greater security against flood risk and allow for the sustainable management of agricultural lands and flood-dependent ecosystems. The primary objectives of the Moomin Creek Floodplain Management Study are to:

  • Coordinate floodplain development in order to minimise adverse changes to surface flow patterns;
  • Develop and adopt floodplain management principles and development assessment criteria;
  • Increase the sustainable social, economic and ecological benefits of using the floodplain; and
  • Improve and maintain the diversity and well-being of native riverine and floodplain ecosystems that depend on regular flood inundation.
