Stony Creek Floodplain Risk Management Plan

This Floodplain Risk Management Study investigates what can be done to reduce or manage the effects of flooding in the catchment. The Floodplain Risk Management Plan recommends a mix of strategies to manage the risks of flooding. Using the merits-based approach advocated in the NSW State Government’s Floodplain Development Manual (2005) and in consultation with the community, Council and state agency stakeholders, a number of potential options for the management of flooding were identified. These options included: • flood modification measures; • property modification measures; and • emergency response measures. An extensive list of options was assessed against a range of criteria (technical, economic, environmental and social). Hydraulic modelling of some of the flood modification options was undertaken to provide a comprehensive analysis of those options that would involve significant capital expenditure.
