Community Input Sought on draft Bonalbo Flood Study

Kyogle Council has voted unanimously to place the draft Bonalbo Flood Study on public display and seek submissions on the document from the community.

Prepared by consulting engineering firm BG&E, the study aims to develop a detailed understanding of the flood behavior at Bonalbo, from both Peacock Creek (mainstream flooding) and the local catchment drainage through the town.

Detailed hydrologic analysis and hydraulic modelling has been undertaken to map the predicted flood extents, levels, depths, velocities and hazards associated with a range of possible flood types from a 1 in 5 year flood, up to a 1 in 500 year event and the PMF Event (Probable Maximum Flood).

The study also considers the predicted effects of climate change on flood behavior.

In preparing the study, the consultants used information collected from the public in a questionnaire about the community’s experience of flooding.

Ultimately, information in the flood study will be used to develop a Floodplain Risk Management Plan which will set out measures to minimise the risk and consequences of future flooding.

More information, including a video presentation is available on the project website (link here)

Public exhibition of the draft Bonalbo Flood Study has been extended until 4pm 23 September 2021. It can be viewed at the following locations;

  • Bonalbo post office
  • Old Bonalbo post office
  • Kyogle library
  • Kyogle Council administration building
  • and by following this link

Comment or feedback on the draft Bonalbo Flood Study should be provided by email to BonalboFloodStudy@BGEENG.com or by post to Kyogle Council, PO Box 11, KYOGLE  NSW  2474

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.
