DEVELOPMENT OF FLOOD STUDIES FOR BONALBO, URBENVILLE, AND WOODENBONG

Kyogle Council and Tenterfield Shire Council have engaged engineering consultant BG&E Engineering to develop flood studies for Bonalbo, Urbenville, and Woodenbong. The studies are being undertaken with financial and technical assistance from both Councils and Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE) through the NSW Government’s Floodplain Management Program.

The Flood Studies will help Council understand the likely flooding scenarios for each village area including flooding from creeks and runoff from local catchments.

Council has sought input from the community about flooding in the area, including experiences, photos and observations of flooding.  Surveys were posted to residents in the area and the returned surveys have been forwarded to consultants BG&E Engineering.
