Floodplain management

Council continuously works on updating and improving our understanding of flood risk within the Singleton Local Government area using the NSW Government's Floodplain Management Program.

FLOODPLAIN MANAGEMENT PROCESS

There are 5 stages in the Floodplain Management Process:

  1. Data Collection - collecting relevant information
  2. Flood Study – build a hydraulic model to define the nature and extent of the flood problem in technical rather than map form
  3. Floodplain Risk Management Study – update the hydraulic model to determine options in consideration of risk
  4. Floodplain Risk Management Plan – planned actions to be adopted for Council
  5. Plan Implementation – doing the works.
