DRAFT MURRUMBURRAH FLOODPLAIN RISK MANAGEMENT STUDY AND PLAN

The Draft Murrumburrah Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan was received by Council and resolved to place on public exhibition at its July 2020 Ordinary Council meeting.  The public exhibition period will run for 28 days, commencing Tuesday 4 August 2020 until Tuesday 1 September 2020.

The Draft Murrumburrah Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan focuses on the Currawong (Murrimboola) Creek catchment in Harden-Murrumburrah and will assist Council to plan and manage the risks the community faces from flooding.
Council, with funding from the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment, engaged WMAwater Pty Ltd to complete the Study and Plan.

The Draft Murrumburrah Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan puts forward priorities and recommendations for flood risk mitigation (see Table 4 on Page 8 of the Plan, shown below).
