Floodplain Risk Management Plan

Narrandera Floodplain Risk Management Plan

There is a long history of flooding from the Murrumbidgee River in Narrandera. Serious flooding has been reported since settlement began over 150 years ago. Formal gauging of river levels in Narrandera commenced in 1892, with gauging upstream in Gundagai and Wagga Wagga, and downstream at Hay and Balranald prior to this in 1887. The objectives of the FRMP are to:

  • Present recommended floodplain measures identified in the Floodplain Risk Management Study (SKM, 2008)
  • Make recommendations to Council on the priority of measures presented
  • Identify potential sources of funding for floodplain management measures
  • Obtain feedback from the local community, which can be incorporated into the final Floodplain Risk Management Plan
  • Obtain formal approval of the Final Plan from Council following public exhibition.
