Boorowa Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan Reports

Hilltops Council (Council) commissioned the Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan for the township of Boorowa. The overall objectives of the Floodplain Risk Management Study (FRMS) were to assess the impacts of flooding, review existing Council policies as they relate to development of land in flood liable areas, consider options for the management of flood affected land and to develop a Floodplain Risk Management Plan (FRMP) which: i) Proposes modifications to existing Council policies to ensure that the development of flood affected land is undertaken so as to be compatible with the flood hazard and risk. ii) Proposes Flood Planning Levels for the various land uses in the floodplain. iii) Sets out the recommended program of works and measures aimed at reducing over time, the social, environmental and economic impacts of flooding. iv) Provides a program for implementation of the proposed works and measures.

The FRMS focuses on Main Stream Flooding from the Boorowa River, Ryans Creek and Ryans Tributary, as well as two major un-named tributaries, Minor Tributary Flooding caused by high flows in the minor un-named tributaries which drain to the aforementioned watercourses, and Major Overland Flow areas which occur in the urbanised parts of Boorowa and its immediate surrounds.
