Review of Floodplain Management in NSW - Recommendations to the Flooding & Drainage Advisory Committee

The review document - "Review of Floodplain Management Practice in New South Wales", published in May 1989 by the Public Works Department and Department of Water Resources identified 10 separate floodplain management issues on which written comments were requested. These comments are assessed in Sections 3 to 11 of this report each of which contains detailed conclusions and recommendations with regard to the specific issue. The recommendations presented here are more general and summary in nature. Two issues of the review document the inclusion of urban drainage in the Policy and the impact of new development on urban drainage systems - have been combined into a single issue in this report, namely urban drainage management.
