Murwillumbah CBD Levee & Drainage Study

A study to better define flooding and drainage behaviour within the CBD associated with local catchment runoff as well as levee overtopping. A key objective of the study was to also identify the merits of implementing a range of potential measures to assist in better managing the flood risk for those sections of the town contained behind the levee system.
