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

A project is currently underway to investigate the fesability and design flood detention basin in the North Boambee Valley as recommended in the 2016 Floodplain Risk Management Plan.

A project is also underway to investgate the feasibility of numerous mitigation options to decrease flood risk around the Coffs Harbour health campus
