Boambee and Newports Creek

Studies and Plan

A flood study for the Boambee and Newports Creek catchments was completed in 2011 to identify flood behaviour and the likelihood of flooding across the catchments.

A Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan for Boambee Newports Creek was undertaken and adopted by Council on 9 June 2016. It presents floodplain management measures incorporating both structural and non-structural measures to manage flood risk in the Boambee and Newports Creek floodplains.

Current Works and Projects

City of Coffs Harbour investigated the feasibility and design of the flood detention basin in the North Boambee Valley as recommended in the 2016 Floodplain Risk Management Plan. We have received grant funding through the NSW floodplain management program to construct the basin.
