Flood studies & maps


Council completed its flood studies to meet the NSW Government’s Floodplain Risk Management requirements.

The studies each focus on a catchment area in the municipality.

They define the behaviour of flooding in the catchment including:

  • flood levels
  • velocities
  • hydraulic categories
  • provisional hazard categories.

The studies also identify flood-prone land in the event of storm events.
