Floodplain Risk Management Plan

Wakool River Moama-Moulamein Railway to Gee Gee Bridge - Floodplain Management Plan

This Stage 2 floodplain management plan (Stage 2 FMP) has been prepared to provide strategic guidance for the NSW Government agencies and landholders involved in managing floodwaters on the Wakool River (Moama–Moulamein railway to Gee Gee Bridge) floodplain. The vision for the Stage 2 FMP is to design a floodway network capable of transmitting the design flood volume that minimises the social and economic impact of flooding, while maximising environmental watering within the floodplain where practically and economically possible.

The objectives linked to this vision statement are:

  • to achieve a coordinated, balanced approach to floodplain management taking into account hydraulic, environmental and economic considerations, and legislative requirements
  • to ensure the sustainable and equitable use of floodplain resources.
