  • Village residents called on to share their experiences to help develop Tarcutta, Uranquinty & Ladysmith Floodplain Risk Management Studies and Plans

    3 months ago

    Residents of Tarcutta, Ladysmith and Uranquinty are being asked to share their experiences of flooding in their area as the next stage of the Floodplain Risk Management Program gets underway.

    The NSW Government program consists of five stages to help councils make informed decisions about what measures are needed to reduce and manage flood risk.

    Flood studies for the three villages were completed in late 2014, which carried out detailed hydrologic and hydraulic computer modelling to define the range of possible floods that can occur in each village.

    Residents of Tarcutta, Ladysmith and Uranquinty are being asked to share their experiences of flooding in their area as the next stage of the Floodplain Risk Management Program gets underway.

    The NSW Government program consists of five stages to help councils make informed decisions about what measures are needed to reduce and manage flood risk.

    Flood studies for the three villages were completed in late 2014, which carried out detailed hydrologic and hydraulic computer modelling to define the range of possible floods that can occur in each village.

    Floodplain Risk Management Studies and Plans for Tarcutta, Ladysmith and Uranquinty are now being developed to help identify and recommend appropriate actions to manage flooding in these communities.

    “Tarcutta, Ladysmith and Uranquinty each experienced severe flooding in the October 2010 and March 2012 floods that swept through the Murrumbidgee basin,” Wagga Wagga City Council’s Director Commercial Operations Caroline Angel said.

    “Many properties were flooded during the floods, with October 2010 causing more extensive damage and wider evacuation.

    “Flood Studies for these three villages were carried out in late 2014, with detailed hydrologic and hydraulic computer modelling to define the range of possible floods that can occur in each town.

    “The documents now being developed will make a detailed assessment of flood risk in each of the three villages and will include investigating a range of possible measures Council may use to reduce or manage flood risk in the towns.

    “We would like to hear your experiences of flooding to better understand how flooding occurs in these villages and what measures may improve the current flood situation.”

    Council has appointed flood engineering specialists GRC Hydro to complete the Floodplain Risk Management Studies and Plans.

    Residents are asked to complete the surveys by Friday 1 March 2019 to ensure their feedback can be included in the development of the documents.

    Wagga Wagga City Council, Senior Project Manager Darryl Woods, said Stage 2 involves the upgrade of 6.1km of the levee bank, stretching from Gobbagombalin Bridge to Copeland Street.

    “Due to the complexity and size of the project the contractor will split the work into phases, with the first section to be undertaken between Wiradjuri Bridge and Johnson Street.

    “The first phase involves the extension of the existing concrete retaining walls in Cadell Place and the installation of capped sheet piles into the earth levee from Cadell Place wall to Johnson St.

    “Activity this week included the set-up of work site compounds in a section of the Wagga Wagga Beach carpark and the Wagga Wagga City Council carpark on the corner of Fitzmaurice and Crampton Streets.

    “For safety reasons the Wiradjuri walking track from Wiradjuri Bridge to Johnson Street will be fenced and closed from Monday 14th January while works are underway. This includes the upper levee track and lower riverside pathway,” he said.

    Motorists are advised there are changes to timed parking in Crampton St and Fitzmaurice Streets. There is no change to access to Wagga Beach.

    Residents, businesses and motorists are advised to be aware of increased heavy vehicle movements in the area.

    Floodplain residents will be better protected from flood risks in North Wagga Wagga thanks to a $156,000 grant from the NSW Government, announced on 7 December 2018.

    Wagga Wagga City Council has welcomed the grant that will fund a feasibility study on how best to protect residents exposed to risk from the Wagga floodplain.

    Mayor of the City of Wagga Wagga Cr Greg Conkey OAM said Council welcomes the funding and will continue consultation with residents about flood protection.

    “The funding is timely as Stage 1 of the Main City Levee upgrade project nears completion and Stage 2 works are scheduled to start on 7 January 2018,” Cr Conkey said.

    Wagga Wagga-based MLC, Wes Fang, said recent storm and flash flooding activity across the south of the state shows the need to prepare the community now for future weather events.

    “This funding allows council to better understand local needs and create a safer community into the future,” Mr Fang said.

    “Ultimately, this means we’ll all have a better understanding of the potential risks so mitigation plans can be developed and at the ready should the worst happen.

    “With summer now underway, this is a timely opportunity to fortify our future by protecting local residents, properties and infrastructure moving forward.”

    The Government has provided $1.8 million in 2018-2019 to fund a number of projects, including the study for Wagga Wagga City Council, as part of the Floodplain Grants Scheme.

    During the public exhibition period, Council received 439 submissions, including:

    · 397 submissions - Proforma

    · 29 submissions - Individual

    · 13 submissions – Online

    “We would like to thank everyone who went to the effort of attending a drop-in session to learn more about the study and plan and everyone who took the time to make a submission,” Mayor of City of Wagga Wagga Councillor Greg Conkey OAM said.

    “This is one of Council’s most important documents and we look forward to progressing with the recommended floodplain risk management measures.”

    The Wagga Wagga Revised Floodplain Risk Management Study includes a full assessment of the existing flood risk in the catchment, including flood hazard across the study area, overfloor flooding of residential, commercial and industrial properties, identification of known flooding issues and hotspots, and emergency response during a flood event.

    The study also assesses various measures aimed at managing this flood risk against a range of criteria, and from this assessment the Revised Floodplain Risk Management Plan recommends risk management measures.

    Council will now make an application under the NSW Government’s Floodplain Management Program to undertake a North Wagga Flood Mitigation Options Feasibility Study.

    The feasibility study will investigate and compare the Voluntary House Raising & Voluntary Purchase Scheme, with the North Wagga Levee Upgrade to a 5% AEP level of protection. It will also assess the feasibility of a combined approach of both the levee upgrade and the voluntary house raising and purchasing.

    Residents are invited to have their say on the draft revised Wagga Wagga Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan.

    The draft revised study and plan investigates potential mitigation options for flooding from the Murrumbidgee River in Wagga Wagga, and, makes recommendations on how the city should manage flood risks into the future.

    The study area modelled for the draft revised study and plan stretches from 5km upstream of Oura to Malebo Gap downstream – a total river length of 63km.

    Last night Councillors resolved to place the draft revised study and plan on public exhibition from today until November 21 2017, and invite public submissions on the draft document.

    Residents can view the draft document and make a submission at www.wagga.nsw.gov.au/waggafloodplain

    “Wagga Wagga is a community that lives and works on a floodplain, so it’s vitally important we are managing flood risks now and into the future,” Mayor of the City of Wagga Wagga Councillor Greg Conkey OAM said.

    “The last Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan for Wagga Wagga was completed in 2009. Since this time there has been two moderate flood events at Wagga, in 2010 and 2012, and a minor event last year.

    “As well as gaining vital information from these events, there has also been major advancements in flood modelling technology, allowing a much larger area to be modelled to a greater degree of accuracy.

    “A Detailed Flood Model Revision was conducted in 2014, and this draft revised document follows on from this information.”

    Recommendations in the revised study and plan have been put forward by the Floodplain Risk Management Advisory Committee.

    The committee is made up of voting members, including community members and Councillors, and non-voting members, including third-party organisations and Council staff.

    The recommendations have been developed through advice, studies and analysis put forward by flood and water management specialists from WMA Water.

    What has the Floodplain Risk Management Advisory Committee recommended?

    Two major options that have been recommended for inclusion in the revised study and plan are to:

    · Complete a feasibility study to investigate a Voluntary House Raising and Voluntary Purchase Scheme for the Wagga Wagga study area

    · Complete a feasibility study to further investigate an upgrade of North Wagga Levee to 1 in 20 year level of protection with access upgrade to Hampden Avenue and conveyance improvements through Wilks Park.

    “It has been proposed to complete feasibility studies together for both options to determine if either option is practical and appropriate, and which option is preferred,” Cr Conkey said.

    “It is important to remember that these recommendations are not final. There are still a number of processes to follow before anything is implemented or any works are carried out.”

    Other flood mitigation measures recommended for inclusion in the revised study and plan include:

    · Long-term infrastructure upgrades to improve access between Wagga Wagga, Oura and Gumly Gumly via Oura Road, Wiradjuri Bridge and the Sturt Highway

    · Targeted vegetation management activities

    · Improved flood response strategies

    · Flood-related planning policies

    Detailed information on each of the options being recommended are available in the draft Study and Plan at www.wagga.nsw.gov.au/waggafloodplain

    Have your say

    A series of community pop-in sessions will be held during the public exhibition period. These sessions will include displays and information about the draft revised Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan for community members to further understand the study, plan and recommendations being put forward for inclusion.

    “I strongly encourage residents within the Wagga Wagga floodplain area to attend one of the pop-in sessions, meet with members of the project team and have any questions they have about the draft revised study and plan clarified,” Cr Conkey said.

    “Anyone can make a public submission, and as per the recommendation put to the Council on Monday, Council staff will also be making a formal submission in response to the draft documentation.

    “On conclusion of the exhibition period, all submissions will be considered in the final study and plan, which will be presented back to Council in the coming months.”

    The sessions will start in November, dates and locations of these sessions will be advertised soon. In addition to these sessions, the draft revised study and plan is available now online at www.wagga.nsw.gov.au/waggafloodplain

    Flood management – what else is happening in the Local Government Area?

    Flood management affects all Wagga Wagga residents, and, Wagga Wagga City Council is committed to working towards long-term actions and conversations with the community about all aspects of flood management.

    In addition to the draft revised Wagga Wagga Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan, the following flood management projects and studies are either underway or in progress:

    · Stage 1 Main City Levee upgrade – www.wagga.nsw.gov.au/levee

    · Stage two of the Wagga Wagga Major Overland Flow Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan

    · Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plans for Tarcutta, Ladysmith and Uranquinty. Funding for these individual studies was successful received through the Floodplain Grants Scheme in August 2017






  • Stage 1 Main City Levee upgrade moves from concept to construction

    Published: 4 October

    Wagga Wagga residents will start to see work on the first stage of the Main City Levee upgrade from next week.

    Crews from Central West Civil, who are delivering stage 1, started site preparation yesterday.

    In preparation for the heavy equipment to move in, on-site works this week include surveying and setting out of the works and installing temporary fences associated with the works.

    Wagga Wagga residents will start to see work on the first stage of the Main City Levee upgrade from next week.

    Crews from Central West Civil, who are delivering stage 1, started site preparation yesterday.

    In preparation for the heavy equipment to move in, on-site works this week include surveying and setting out of the works and installing temporary fences associated with the works.

    “Having crews on site officially moves this vitally important project from concept to construction,” Director Commercial Operations Caroline Angel said.

    “While, it might not look like much to start with, by mid-October residents will start to notice the heavy machinery on site, working away on the upgrade.”

    Senior Project Manager Darryl Woods said upgrading the levee was a major project and some disruptions will be experienced during the works.

    “To make way for the levee upgrade, some sections of the Wiradjuri Walking Track will be closed for a period of time with detours and signs in place,” Mr Woods said.

    “Council and Central West Civil will aim to ensure any disruptions are kept to a minimum and we thank the community for their cooperation during the delivery of the levee upgrade.”

    Stage 1 of the Main City Levee upgrade is being delivered in two stages, starting at Flowerdale and working around to Wiradjuri Bridge before moving on to Copland Street and working south to the Kooringal Road Monumental Cemetery.

    Both sections consists of embankment levee earthen works and the construction of two concrete spillways, one at Flowerdale and the other upstream from Copland Street.

    Stage 1 is expected to be complete by April 2018.


    The Main City Levee upgrade has had to go through a thorough and considered process to reach construction. This process included many studies, designs, securing funding sources and extensive community input and feedback.

    What will residents see during construction?

    During the first week of construction residents will see temporary fences erected and various preparation works completed. By mid-October machinery, such as graders, diggers and trucks, will be working on site.

    The stage 1 upgrade works include removing the existing topsoil and grass, shaping and scraping the existing levee to allow room for the new material and compacting the new levee to the required standards.

    The slope and shape of the levee is designed to minimise erosion and will be finished off with a decomposed granite surface allowing for all-weather access and reducing moisture entry into the clay bank.

    In total, machinery will move 25,000 cubic metres of clay, topsoil and granite as part of the stage 1 upgrade of the levee.

    Will there be any interruptions during construction?

    During construction of the levee upgrade some sections of the Wiradjuri Walking Track, which runs alongside the Murrumbidgee River, will be subject to temporary closures.

    These closures are to allow for the safe construction of the levee upgrade.

    Closures of the walking track associated with the Main City Levee upgrade are:

    · Flowerdale Lagoon – closed for duration of project (October 2017 – April 2018)

    · Copland Street/Kooringal Road roundabout to Monumental Cemetery – closed from 1 November 2017 to February 2018

    All dates are subject to weather and works and any additional interruptions will be advertised accordingly.

    What about Stage 2?

    Stage 2 of the Main City Levee upgrade, pending tender process, is expected to start in April 2018 and be complete by the end of that year.

    Stage 2 will comprise of predominately capped sheet piles that will protrude from the earth levee running the length of the Cadell Place wall (parallel to Fitzmaurice Street) to Johnson Street, then from, Riverina Playhouse to Hammond Avenue. In addition to the sheet piling, raising and extending the existing concrete retaining walls along Cadell Place and behind Watermark apartments, will also be part of this stage.

    Mayor of the City of Wagga Wagga Councillor Greg Conkey OAM, Wagga Wagga City Council General Manager Robert Knight, Council project managers and Central West Civil General Manager Simon Withers were on the levee today for the signing and exchange.

    “Today’s announcement is a huge milestone in the delivery of this important project for the city,” General Manager Robert Knight said.

    “The upgrade of the levee is a high priority for Council and the community, however, a thorough and considered process, involving many voices, had to be followed before we could get to this construction stage. This included community consultation, studies, designs and seeking funding sources.

    “The project is now in a position where all parties are confident that what is built will be the best for the Wagga Wagga community.”

    Cr Conkey said the levee upgrade has many benefits for the local community.

    “We’ve had to follow an extensive process, and the community will be pleased to learn that construction of the first stage of the levee is now just weeks away,” Cr Conkey said.

    “This project is a great example of what can be achieved when all levels of government work together. The levee upgrade helps safeguard our community and boosts confidence in the local economy to drive further investment.”

  • Villages in line for flood mitigation plan

    about 2 years ago

    Wagga Wagga City Council will be able to identify flood mitigation measures for three villages after it was successful in securing funding from the Floodplain Grants Scheme.

    Director Commercial Operations Caroline Angel says a Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan (FRMSP) will now be developed for Tarcutta, Ladysmith and Uranquinty.

    “The $132,000 from the NSW and Federal Governments will be matched by $66,000 from Council and is the next step in a process Council began with each community in 2014 when it conducted data collection and developed flood studies for the villages.

    “Each village requires its own Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan due to the unique nature of the flood risks from localised overland flows and swollen creeks bursting their banks.

    “Council first applied for funding for this project in February 2016 and is pleased to see that it has now been successful so that we can move forward with the process.”

    The Villages FRMSP will assist Council in developing strategic plans for mitigating and managing the effects of existing, future and continuing flood risk.

    “The objective of this project is to provide Council with an understanding of current levels of flood risk within these villages, to formulate a plan to mitigate and/or manage these risks effectively and to inform Council’s planning strategies on the future land use and development within the flood prone land,” Ms Angel added.

    “Each community will be consulted during the process.”

    This project will be in addition to work already underway to upgrade the main city levee, review of the Wagga Wagga Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan and Stage two the Wagga Wagga Major Overland Flow Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan.
