Murray Downs Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan

The Murray Downs Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan (FRMS&P) project has been undertaken to provide the Murray River Council and other stakeholders with a Floodplain Risk Management Plan which clearly defines flooding risks at Murray Downs and identifies preferred mitigation options for implementation to reduce future flood risks and associated damages. The development of a Floodplain Risk Management Plan for Murray Downs follows the completion of the Murray Downs Flood Study in 2014. The Flood Study report (GHD, 2014) documents Murray River flooding conditions at Murray Downs based on an assessment of historical records and computer modelling using detailed terrain data for the floodplain. This Floodplain Risk Management Plan relates to the Murray Downs town area and does not address rural flooding issues outside this area.
