Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan

Quirindi Township and Surrounding Area Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan

Quirindi Creek confluences with Jacob and Joseph Creek, downstream of Gurton Street and upstream of Whitaker Street, in the township of Quirindi. During large flood events, the two creeks have the potential to surcharge and flood a significant portion of town located on the floodplain. Bank overflows to two “flood runners” linking the two creeks north of Milner Parade, can lead to widespread inundation of the built-up area between the two creeks. In addition, widespread inundation on the edges of the floodplain could be expected. Key objectives include:

  • Undertake a Floodplain Risk Management Study and develop a Management Plan that addresses existing future and continuing flooding associated with Quirindi Creek and tributaries;
  • Undertake the study and develop the plan in accordance with the NSW Floodplain Development Manual, 2005;
  • Engage the community and stakeholders to solicit feedback, understanding and support of the Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan; and
  • Ensure consultation with the key stakeholders including Council, the Flood Risk Management Committee and the community are undertaken in a thorough manner throughout the project.
