South Albury Levee Rehabilitation - Statement of Environmental Effects

The Albury City Council proposes to undertake an upgrade of approximately 60 m of riverbank and levee on an anabranch of the Murray River located to the south of the city centre. The location of the proposed works is on the east bank of the anabranch running north from Abercorn Street Bridge in South Albury. The anabranch forms one of the side channels to the Murray River. The objectives of the proposal are to:

  • Rehabilitate the levee structure that has cracked due to movement caused by trees;
  • Remove trees that are causing cracking in the levee wall;
  • Stabilise the bank to reduce undercutting of the levee wall;
  • Increase the height of the levee initially to 154.6 AHD (500 mm above the 1 in 100 year flood level), with the option of extending this a further 500 mm to 155.10 m AHD at a later date; and
  • Design the levee to blend with the existing environment.
