Tamworth - City Levee Upgrade - Review of Environmental Factors

Tamworth City Council proposes to upgrade its City Levee. These works follow from the recommendations of the "Floodplain Management Plan" for the City of Tamworth and Council's commitment to pursue flood mitigation for the City. This Review of Environmental factors considers the consequences of undertaking the upgrading of the City Levee.

Tamworth City Levee lies along the eastern bank of the Peel River between Murray Street and Jewry Street, in an already urbanised area. The levee is adjacent to, and protects, the Central Business District from inundation by floodwaters. This proposal provides for the strengthening and raising of the City Levee to the 1 in 100 year flood water level plus one metre.

This document describes in detail the proposal for the raising of the City Levee to provide an understanding of the development. Also discussed are the possible alternatives to the proposal to clarify why the adopted design is considered the better option for the City. An assessment of the potential effects on the environment is provided to describe how the proposal and its construction will interact with the natural and built environments. The measures to be taken to mitigate the potential effects on the environment are outlined. The benefits of the proposal are discussed and a justification for the proposal is provided.
