Lachlan Shire Council has engaged consultants to undertake a Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan (FRMS&P) for Condobolin. The main objective in undertaking the study is to develop a Management Plan which reduces the impact of flooding on occupiers of flood prone property and reduces damages resulting from floods. The FRMS&P will build on the results of the Flood Study completed in 2008 which defined flooding patterns and flood levels in the Lachlan River at Condobolin under present day conditions.
